Default Need help here.

Hi guys, im new to this forum. Basically the question i want to ask is "How do i check when and what time a program is installed even after it is uninstalled?"
if you still dont get me, i'll give you an example.
For instance, im a father of two and i go to work daily. My children plays the computer and installs a game. After playing for a while they uninstall the game to prevent me from knowing. I came back from work and want to check whether they installed that game. what are the ways to check for recently installed software, even after they have been uninstalled other than system restore

download a keylogger such as 007 spy software which takes screen shots, key strokes, etc


go to C:\Program Files

hit prt sc sysrd button above the home key, depending on what key board you have, open word, hit paste. This will do a print screen of your program files. if they add or uninstall any of those games, usually the game folder will still be there so when you get home, open word and compare those files with the ones on your system now.

the best way thou is the keylogger
