Add/Remove Programs SW usage -- what does "frequently" mean?

Posted on 2007-11-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
When viewing Add/Remove Programs values listed for Used include rarely, frequently, occasionally.  I see that Frequency of Us is based on the number of times the program has been run in the last 30 days.  Does anyone know what count ranges are equivalent to these terms?

Thanks very much!

This link gives info on how Add/Remove Programs gets the information, but doesn't break down what MS considers rarely, frequently, or occassionally.

Haven't found what number count MS uses, still looking.  I'll let you know if I can find it.
