I uninstalled one program and then when I went back to add/remove programs in control panel most of my programs are not showing up.

I take it, it's some sort of registry issue or something (I'm pretty computer ignorant), but how do I fix it?

Click on Programs and Features. That's where Add/Remove programs should be. Are you saying it's not?

Yes that's correct - the majority of my computer programs are now not showing up in Programs and Features. Even though they are still all installed and working properly on the computer itself.

From what I gather it is some problem with the regestry, apparently people had this problem on Windows XP and there was a way to fix it. So I wonder if anyone knows how to fix it for Windows 7?

Sorry, I don't know. And the registry isn't something to be messed with if you don't know what you're doing. Have you tried a repair of Win 7?

Perhaps it would be a good idea to send a PM to your (very capable) helper narenxp who is assisting you on your topic "Please I need you miracle workers desperately" ? Seems this problem would likely be related to the malware issues, no?

Just my .02 :)

1) What program did you uninstall?

2) You are giving Programs & Features enough time to fully populate, correct?

3) You can try runnings sfc /scannow (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833)

Just noticed you had a malware issue and I agree with Union_Thug's post above. This is probably related.
