Strange Phenomena In Add & Remove Programs Window

  Sandy110 21:38 27 Aug 2005

After trying to delete an unwanted program in the Add/Remove programs window, all but four of the listed programs have jumped to the bottom of the page (you have to scroll right down to the bottom to find the rest) Any ideas?

"If you have a large white space seperating the first 4 entries from the rest of them then this might work (it did for me with the above problem)

The fix for this, from Kelly's Korner, isolates the registry
entries for the Add/Remove Programs window, at:
It suggests that the white space is caused by a sub-entry of
that registry folder in which the program has an entry for
Display Icon which contains a negative number for the icon:
"C:\Program Files\Logitech\IM Video Companion\VideoIM.exe",-1
for example. Not all programs will have a Display Icon entry,
so it might not take too long to find the one that does. The
icon number should be a positive number, so just eliminating
the negative sign should work, or, if not, you could just
delete the Display Icon entry for that program. The rest of
the information should still load."

This came from click here which has a number of other suggestions if the above doesn't work.

Thanks for your help. Got the fix from Kelly's Korner and all o.k now.
