I Have a Windows 2000 Machine
Back 2 maybe 3 years ago I was playing with my Registry. I Changed/Added something that had an effect on installing programs. However I didnít really install much on the machine so I havenít realized till recently what has been going on. (saying 2 maybe 3 years ago because i don't remember what i did/when i did it)
When I Install a Program it installs just fine. I can put an Icon on Desktop or in Quick Launch. in Programs from the Start Menu itís a different story. The Program Menu seems to be Frozen itís the exact same it was 2-3 years ago. I have Uninstalled/Installed/Reinstalled Programs Many times. And still has the same Programs Menu. Now however Iím starting to Uninstall some programs I donít use anymore because its only a 10GIG Drive. So the programs are no longer there yet the icons stay in Programs Menu (I can Manually Add/Delete) Now that I removed the Programs the Icons do Change to ďblankĒ Icons. Nothing I install will show up in Programs Menu.
Things I have done
Reinstalled Windows right over top of Old Windows Ė Nadda
Reason for Not just Formatting and starting Over:
It might be a Nuisance but I wanna know what it was after all this time!
SO IF ANYONE KNOWS THIS ENTRY OR THINKS THEY CAN FIND IT OR FINDS IT PLEASE LET ME KNOW =)
EDIT: BTW Please don't respond back with "did you make a backup?" No i didn't i normally don't keep things this Long
