Proof of Software Installation

jekautz asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-05
For legal reasons, I am required to provide evidence of when a software application was installed or uninstalled from a Windows 7 PC.  We know the software was uninstalled about 4 years ago from Programs and Features.

What are some ways / methods / tools that I can use to find the existence of this software.  Are there some obscure logs in Windows that record information that could help me?  Anything in the registry?
