The add remove programs list in my xp machine is blank. any ideas on what would cause this. my research points to a registry problem, but I can't figure out what entries etc.
Thanks

Do the options show in the left margin? Change or remove programs, Add new programs, Add/remove Windows components, Set program access and defaults. Do any of these work?

Are you sure that there isn't a virus/malware on your system that's causing this?

If there isn't, try this:
Go to Start...Run...and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
In the black window, type in "REGSVR32 APPWIZ.CPL" (without the quotes) and press Enter

If that doesn't work, try this free program to re-register your programs: http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix#Standard_version
Pay particular attention to the Control Panel applets listed in section 5.

Let us know if this helps. If not, there's plenty of other stuff to try! :thumbsup:

sorry but you really need to start your OWN thread on this to seek for help as you are on a different computer so really you do NOT have the SAME problem although it may appear similar :thumbsup:
