I find that this "New Programs Installed" message is very disturbing indeed, specially when there are no new programs that I have downloaded or installed!

My usual first instinct is to try to find out exactly which new programs, but I cannot find a way to do this.

How is it possible for new program(s) to be installed on my computer if I have not done this myself?

I was under the impression that any unauthorised (by me) programs could never be installed without Administrator privileges?

ps. Am I notified by email if any replies to this are posted? (This is my very first Forum post.)
