Click on the link below:

Scroll down to #337 and click "Restore Change or Remove Programs" in the right column. Go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save noremovepage.reg to your desktop. Double-click on the file and choose "Yes" to merge it into the registry when prompted.

This step involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.

Also see Add/Remove Programs list are missing Change and Remove buttons.

Try Kelly's Korner.

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

As this is a registry edit you should backup your registry first.

Another thing you can try is to do a System Restore back to a time before you had this problem.

I have merged the other topic you started, with this one.
Please keep all responses, confined to this topic.
Starting two topics, about the same problem, is called Double Posting, and is not allowed on this board.


Try this:
Start / Run / and type; cmd / OK
At the command prompt type: regsvr32 appwiz.cpl (Note the space between 32, and appwiz)
Click the Enter key.
When finished, type; exit.
Click the Enter key.
Reboot and see if it works now.

None of these solutions have worked I have found out that my new remove list contains alot of subcomponents of the kodak program but not the kodak program itself so I cannot remove it. any other suggestions?

Try running the System File Checker.

Yahoo Messenger is the culprit. I'm in IT support and had someone come to me with this same problem, and it happened after he tried to uninstall Yahoo Messenger. I removed it from my machine to test, and viola, same problem. Trying to work out a solution to it now. I know that restoring to a date before Yahoo Messenger installed should fix it...but I'm trying to find out which .dll was affected for a better fix.
