    Windows shows a program was installed before I bought the computer?


    I asked this question before but got no replies so I thought I would make it a more general question. Previous post here: - HP Sure Run shows an install date 10 months before PC was setup? More general post here: - HP EliteDesk 705 G5 Desktop Mini PC running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit v20H2, Build 19042.985. Bought new from Technoworld and first setup on 12th January 2021. Looking at the installed programs list I see all are dated 12th January 2021 or later except for HP Sure Run. This shows an install date of 11th March 2020, which is 10 months before I set it up for the first time from new. Q1 Can anyone explain this? A Windows reporting error maybe? Q2 Has anyone else found programs that show they were installed months before the PC was first set up?

    :)
