    Question Add-Remove Programs

    I used an installer or uninstaller that messed up my Add/Remove Programs feature in my control panels. When I click on Add-Remove Programs now it gives me a window with nothing on it but a close button, but the close button is "Cl&ose". The window is blank otherwise. I am using Win2000. Does anyone have any idea what the problems is and how I can fix it. I am guessing that something in the registry is messed up.....
    Any clues?

    Thanks

    Mike

    From bitter experience I can tell you that there probably is a fix. (If you can find it and then make it work.)

    Could try running a regclean.

    When Windows gets confused (gets its knickers twisted) like that I prefer to kill it and start again. In the long run it saves time and frustration.
