If someone could please help.

Please do not make a new post about the same subject only a few minutes
apart. Patience is a virtue. I already answered your first post. If you
can't find it, use Google Groups Advanced Search and search for your
name and/or subject.

Re: add remove programs list empty

My problem is different from saleroso's. When I open Add Remove programs, I
have the message Please wait until the list is populated and the list is
_never_ populated. I was able to see the list being populated when I
started in safe mode.

I went to Kelly's Korner and downloaded autocaddadremovefix and
autodesklanddesktop3 and tried them but they didn't cure the problem because
my problem is not a blank in add remove programs but the list never gets
populated.

Actually I didn't see my problem listed in Windows XP A to Z.

I hope that someone can help.

Re: add remove programs list empty

>> Is your system connected to a network (domain or a workgroup)? <<
No, just connected to my WiFi router.

I did 2 system restore, one to this morning 7am status because I thought
that something I did later this morning may have provoked this but it did
not cure the problem so I did another one to 5 days ago but same: didn't
cure. So I am now going to go back to this afternoon's status.

Hi ah,

Yet another problem which remains unresolved for years!

Is your system connected to a network (domain or a workgroup)?

My guess is that the system is trying to access a file (icon file) in a
network location, or from another physical hard drive and fails. Perhaps you
can send me the export of this registry key, so that I'll try to replicate
the problem.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall

In the meantime, you may use Nir Sofer's excellent "MyUninstaller" utility:
