Windows 10: date column Solved

    date column

    This morning I updated to the latest BitDefender and while doing so their instructions did not indicate to not select uninstall as the installer would complete this task automatically even though a message did pop up asking me to uninstall. I believe this was the reason for the errors that followed regarding this new install.
    I also believe this may have caused the problem in windows 10 control panel uninstall date column becoming empty.
    Prior to this BitDefender issue, the windows 10 control panel uninstall date column was not empty.
    I have searched extensively for why this date column would be empty, but no answers seem available.
    Obviously, this is not an issue with BitDefender that I need to contact their support; it must be something with this OS.

    It would have to be in the file properties when the writer or in this case, Microsoft wants that information there. Because Visual C redistributables change so much, they do not compile in the date info that can be sorted, since you go by version history on anything that Microsoft and others write that deals with software for the OS and programs.

    Thanks for your input bro67. Solved the issue by restoring back to a good image. It seems when I installed the BitDefender and as well during the same time period, I updated my Talking Desktop Clock I started getting BSODs. The only solution at this point was to roll back to a good install.
    Sometimes it is just better to leave well enough alone.
