Whenever I try and remove a program via the Add / Remove in Control Panel I get the uninstall dialogue window coming up and then the system just hangs, Ctrl Alt Del does nothing. Have to power down and start system again.
I thought I would post how I resolved this as it's probably useful for a number of similar problems -
The files needed from the XP disc (which I don't have)are in the I386 folder. I borrowed a friends disc, and copied the entire folder to the root directory on C: I then changed the registry to look in the root directory for the files rather than the CD drive [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\setup] Just double clicked on SourcePath and edited it to C:Restarted the PC, Scannow ran fine. No further problems with the uninstaller.
