Is there a software that can detect and list previously installed programs on a computer? Or any method you know which I can use so that I could see what programs were previously installed assuming that those programs were only uninstalled using the add/remove programs in control panel. Or if you know a method which will also detect and list previously installed programs which are uninstalled using advanced uninstaller like revo.
