hi i hope someone can help. I just tried to uninstall a programme using add and remove and when i entered add and remove it was empty. I have run virus scans and spyware scans, defragged cleaned disk, and even tried a system restore. any idea's how i can get my add and remove function restored to its former glory?

Do you get a message in the top left of the Add or Remove Window saying "Please wait while the list is being populated"?

yes and i have waited for anything up to an hour with no results. Thanks for your reply by the way.

Also don't forget, CCleaner has an useful uninstall Tool.

I know the CCleaner is not the answer to your question, but it can be used as a stop gap. Assuming it can 'populate' ;-)

Sorry I cant be more helpful..

i dont know if this did help but i tried it restarted and then the pc would not let me log on to any user accounts. I then sorted that problem logged on and everything was fine and strangely i seem to have gained extra speed. Everything now works better and faster than before! If it was that thogh, thank you very much for your assistance. very much appreciated!
