Windows 7: Is there an Uninstall log?

Is there an Uninstall log?

I am wondering if there is a general Uninstall log? I quickly glanced at the Event viewer but honestly it is just too overwhelming now. XP's was so nice and simple. Google didn't come up with much either. So it's easier to ask here. I repair computers, but Event view is useless garbage so I rarely open it. Is there a handy Power Shell or Cmd command?

My problem is that Opera has mysteriously uninstalled itself. I will deal with that in another post, because it is likely related to a larger set of problems I'm having. For now I just want to see whether Windows recorded a deliberate uninstall. It is definitely not listed in Programs and Features. (I use Revo Uninstaller, and I searched in both.)

Update: Just tried a registry search (using Registry Workshop) and found nothing.

There is no uninstall log (to my knowledge). There are a host of install/uninstall apps, Revo Uninstaller is 1 of them. I would try installing Revo then re-installing Opera, uninstalling Opera using Revo, then clean installing Opera.

Doing the install/uninstall/clean install will give Revo a basis to work on and hopefully it'll produce an install/uninstall log for you
