i hope i can get some help on this issue, i'd be eternally grateful. i think my problem is similar to that of the first poster.
i've uninstalled programs many times and this is the first time i've encountered this. while looking at the list of programs to remove/change, i highlight the program i want to uninstall. now, normally when i do that...tabs appear at the top of the list --- usually "uninstall", "change", "repair", etc. now when i highlight a program (any program), nothing happens. the tabs don't show up the way they should. it seems as if all those options have been disabled for ALL the programs listed. i know i'm not going crazy because this is the way i've always been able to uninstall programs before. has this happened to anyone and is there a way to fix this problem?
