Fixed sorting bug.
Added start menu scanning as an alternative to the registry scan.
Misc improvements. Added switch to turn off system accessories etc from displaying.

Eliminated scanning of windows folder. Misc optimizations.

Eliminated false access reporting on startup items located in programs installation folder. Excluded DLL access from access reporting. Much more accurate now. Also eliminated services file detection in program files common files folder. Removed size column and added File name column.

I threw this together on 12/15. It will check the last access date and time for every file in a programs installation folder and tell you what was the most recent access date. This is very handy for finding out what your users are actually using on their system when you are cleaning it up and is far more accurate than the add remove programs control panel. A list is presented on the screen with all of the currently installed applications and their usage dates. Just click Scan

I've merged all the threads together and move it into the "Software Applications" forum, rather than have several separate threads.

Nice app - will hopefully give it a whirl tomorrow.
