Add/remove programmes

  njmt7 14:22 19 Sep 2006

When I go into Add/Remove Programmes the window is empty,it says it may take a while to populate the window, but however long I leave it (currently my maximum wait is 30 minutes) nothing appears in the window. Zilch. And I cannot uninstall any of my rubbish.

this seems only to apply to small business version - I am using XP Pro.

I have tried searching this MS website but cannot find anything to help

If you have a Full XP CD you could first try System File Checker. Put CD in comp stop it starting setup. Then in run box type

SFC /SCANNOW press enter.

If that does not sort it you could try System Restore to a earlier time

Are you logged on as the Adminstrator?

I can be logged in as adminstrator if that helps

Don't have the XP disk

okay - I have restored as far back as I am allowed/ The problem persists. Is this a job for a man I have to pay?
