My question is if someone can install some program or whatsoever and than change the installation date to looks like it was installed long before that?

Short answer is yes. Google "change software installation date" and you'll find various methods.

Thanks for the responce Animal, but i only found how to change the installation date your windows, not to manual installed programs. :) And also, if the date is changed, is it irrevirsable? I mean if someone installed something on my machine and changed the date, can i later find the real date or it becomes impossible?
