Cant access Windows add/remove

  nick.p 19:24 20 Jun 2003

I have just followed advice from another magazine to access hidden Windows add/remove items by editing sysoc.inf.
I cannot now access the Windows add/remove program at all,error message reads,error 2x0 on line 2011777033,O/S is XP.
Have tried system restore to no avail,so any help would be most welcome.
Many thanks from someone who has just learned not to play with things i dont understand.

Have you an XP disk (?), throw that in the drive.

Then go to start > Run > Copy and paste:


Click ok and give her 5 minutes to sort herself out.

Reboot and try add/remove again.

Go to start then run and copy and paste the below

regsvr32 appwiz.cpl

Hi all,sorry i only have reload disc,tried the regsvr32 approach and only recvd message (DllRegisterServer in appwiz.cpl succeeded)but still unable to access add/remove.
thanks for the help anyway.

Problem solved,i had removed the extra comma as well as the word "hide", once replaced all OK.
