I newly format Windows 7 on my machine. I have open a non-admin account for other people who use this machine. So no one knows admin password except me.
Today I open "Installed Applications" from "Control Panel". I see that uTorrent is installed on machine.(writes that installation date: today)
I am sure that I did not install it. I had open utorrent portable once when I had log on as admin.
Did anybody open utorrent portable as admin user and look on Installed Application from Control Panel? There was a bug about this?
(Note: I open Program Files and I did not see uTorrent folder.)
This has happened to me a few times as well on Windows 8 x64.
Seems that only the uninstall entry is made/left behind, everything else is handled properly.
I use Revo Uninstaller to get rid of the entry.
To write on "the uninstall entry" needs admin permissions?
