On Thursday Windows 7 did an update and after installation I noticed that when I go in to the Control Panel and look at my Programs Installed it only shows Name Publisher. It used to show Name - Publisher - Installed on - Size - Version. I used to like being able to view all the columns. I did a system restore to the last one before the update and all the columns were back. Security Essentials did an update today and the extra columns were gone again. Very annoying. Anyone else seeing this?

It isn't a problem.
You simply configure it to show the columns you want.
Right-click on the columns and choose which you want.
HINT. Adding the size column can slow up the display.
Thanks Richard.
I'll try that next time they disappear.

Thanks again Richard.
I was originally trying to right click on the Organize bar and that wasn't doing anything.
I let the updates install again and to my surprise the problem did not reoccur again.
That's OK though. Now that I know what to do if it does happen again I'm ready.
I did set the size column not to appear as you suggested.

You right-click on the row of headings just below the Organize bar.
Yes, I did after seeing your original reply.
I just didn't think about trying to right click on the column itself in the beginning.
I was trying the Organize Bar at first in error.
