Finding time of installed programs

How do I find the time a program was installed? When I bring up the Uninstall window, I can see the date but not time; is there a way to find this out?

This is the problem though.

Something called Unity Web Player was installed w/o my knowledge while I was installing some other software & I need to find out what this installation could be attached to.

So I'm hoping that maybe there is a way to search the comfuser by date & time to see what software this Unity Web Player could be attached to.

I hate when a program installs itself w/o my knowledge, even if it is helpful to another program I am installing!!!

Hello CJW when I installed Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online an EA sports game the Unity Web player was also a required installation to play the game.

If you have any games installed made by EA Sports & contain an online feature they may require the Unity Web Player.

richc46 & derekimo:
I get that info as well, but since the Unity Web Player was a silent install, I didn't know what I did install to activate the Unity Web Player's silent install.

IownAmoneyPit:
I found out that the Unity Web Player was silently installed when I installed JumpStart Advanced 1st Grade.

I wish these companies would have a splash screen/some sort of message before their programs just 'invade' w/o the consumer's knowledge. I don't mind Unity getting installed if it is to help use a program I want to install, just let me know about it 1st!

Sorry for the mis-understanding, you were asking for the time it was installed instead of what installed it, at least you figured out where it came from. Thanks for posting back.
