"add and remove programs" very slow to load

I am having problems with "add and remove programs"
it takes about 5 minutes to load the list of programs.
Using XP pro with SP2.
I`ve tried searching the Microsoft knowledge base but not luck.
Has anyone had experience of this.

How long is your list of programs and is the `Show Updates` box checked?

Ooops, didn't mean to post that immediately, meant to add - for un-installing purposes.

If I have "show updates" ticked I have 160 in the list including security updates.
If I untick the box I have 90

jees 90 programs, i would realy go though the list
you could creat alot of free space and speed

That's nothing I have 266, and no problems!

266, and that is without show updates! My list takes only seconds to complete. I suggest that you download and run something like Glary Utilities, and use the One-click Maintenance - I do this daily, among other things.
