I am using Xp Home. I went in to Control panel: Add/remove software to see if I could sensibly remove any programs to free up some disk space. Several programs that I use more or less daily are described as "USED RARELY". One in particular is a DTP package and I have produced three 48 page booklets since Sept 2005 - yet the control panel says it was last used 24/09/05. MS Office 97, which I use only to look at the occasional attachment is listed as USED FREQUENTLY yet Word Perfect- my prefered word processor is apparently never used at all.
How reliable is the useage record? Is it automatically updated or do I have to activate this?
