Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Remove Add or Remove Restrictions - #208 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Check out this page.

It addresses the problem "Why can't I run the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet under Windows 2000 and later?" By restoring some registry entries or files.

how long do you wait for the add/remove list to be 'populated'?

Glad to see you guys got sorted.

You may like to try REVO UNINSTALLER rather than Windows ADD/REMOVE. This will remove all traces from your computer.

Just be wary that REVO will show a lot more in its window, so be very very sure that you know exactly what you are deleting. DO NOT delete stuff just because you think it should not be there.

Free, of course.

Cheers  :thumbsup:
