Navigating to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features and selecting an installed program will display up to three buttons including "Uninstall", "Change", and "Repair". Whether the buttons appear is presumably based on some combination of user permissions (default program status) and availability (Whether the program has implemented an action for this button).

Uninstall is self explanatory and we've probably all used it. What do "Change" and "Repair" do? Is this a universal OS level repair, something at the installer level, or something at the program level like clearing log files?
