im new here but im finding the help to be great. im not sure if im in the right area but i searched the front page for something specific for my problem, and this forum came close to it.

when i go into my add/remove program screen, it generates this long list, and most of it is just blank space to try and give you an example, the scroll bar is small, about 3/20 have programs listed, the rest are just blank space. im not sure if that is a problem or if it is something that i should be worried about.

if im in the wrong forum, then please direct me to the right place

thanks so much for the help, the people at bleepingcomputer are amazing :thumbsup:
