lots of the software installed.

Went into ADD/remove progs in WinXP Home and noticed a lack of listings for all the software that was installed on the machine.

There were about 18 entries but now only 2 like Adobe Reader and Nero.

Any idea on where they could of vanished to or is this anything someone else has come accross in XP.

I have noticed this in a Win98 before but when reinstaling 98 over the top. XP has not had this done and has been a clean install for a year now.

are the programs listed ok under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

expand this to see the entries.i think thats where add remove gets the list from.

i cannot find any info on the MSKb site sorry.

i did find this via google but as it lists the location wrong it may be incorrect,nothing on the MS site re: this "bug" either click here

I will have to keep an eye on it, everything in the registry looked fine.
