    Revo Uninstaller List Differs from Win10 Progs and Features List


    I'm running Win10 Pro 64bit and Revo Uninstaller Pro v3.1.5. There is a huge discrepancy in the installed programs lists provided by Revo Uninstaller and the Win10 Programs and Features control panel. They both say there are 83 installs (that's good). But Revo Uninstaller claims that 15 programs were installed a few days ago on 2/29/2016. The correct number is 3 which is what Win10 says. Today I uninstalled Revo Uninstaller (using Revo Uninstaller to do it) and then reinstalled it. No help.

    I guess it might be OK to ignore this discrepancy but I find it surprising.

    Suggestions?

    I show same thing. You may have discovered a "leap day" bug in the Revo app. I wouldn't worry about it, honestly. It's how it calculates the term "Recently". If you use CCleaner and look at tools/uninstall it list progs. Sort descending date...you get a another answer.

    Thanks for the reply f14tomcat. CCleaner lists a lot more installed programs - more like what Apps & Features lists. In any case, a leap year bug for Revo seems a likely cause. The control panel Programs and Features has the shortest list. It does not include Apps (Metro Apps?).

    Cheers,
