I've never come across this problem, but I suspect that it could be a registry entry that doesn't point anywhere and is causing a blank where there ought to be a program entry. Try a registry cleaner such as RegSeeker click here.

This is usually due to the DisplayIcon registry value for an item having a negative number.

Click Start > Run, type regedit, press Enter and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall. Scroll down the sub-keys in the left pane and look at the corresponding value of DisplayIcon in the right pane.

If the end of any of the lines has a negative number, say -1, right-click and Modify it to 1 (one).

I misread your post and gave you the key for Add Or Remove having a huge blank space:

Here is the key for Control Panel having a blank space:
Navigate to registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don’tload and delete items in the right pane that you want to see in Control Panel.

You want my first post then.

I should have also said that this can be caused by malware. If you have no keys with a minus sign in them, run your 'anti' programs.
