I wanted to delete a programme yesterday but when I started Contol Panel - Add/Remove Programmes, it said it was populating the list and then nothing. I eventually uninstalled the programme using its own uninstaller, but the Control Panel still is of no help even after a couple of restarts and a goodish night's sleep. What can I do to get it working properly again, please?
Tried the sfc route - no joy. I will give the system Restore a go, but the problem there is that I am not sure when Control Panel stopped working - I noticed the fault at the wekend, but it has been weeks since I uninstalled a programme using the feature.
I will experiemnt with this when I have the time and, in the meantime, I will mark this thread as resolved for the sake of tidiness.
Just to close the circle. I now have the problem solved - I have a disk image and I copied appwiz.cpl from the image back to Windows/system32 and blow me down, it worked! (I did do a rename on the file to be replaced so that I could revert again if necessary, but so far so good)
Thanks again Mike
