How to find most recently installed program in Windows 7?

My daughter copied a lot of music and photos from a flash drive onto our family PC a couple of days ago, and it has been running slowly ever since. Even though there were no alerts from the anti-virus software, I’m afraid that she may have accidentally installed some malware. How can I check the recently installed programs to see if anything was installed when she was copying files?

I see you already have an answer. If you need more help, check out the Windows 7 support site:


If you go to the “Start” menu and look at the recently opened programs, the most recently installed software is shown at the bottom of the list. In other words, click the Start button, look at the programs that appear in the windows just above the Start button. The program just above “All Programs” is the new arrival.
