Is the entire list empty?
Or does it list your programs but not give you a button to change/remove?

Also what OS and Service Pack number? e.g. XP Pro SP3?

I would use a program like prefect installer or your uninstaller. They uninstall then scan the registry for left over install files and folders that windows add/remove wont do.

See if the solution posted here helps http://forums.techarena.in/windows-xp-s ... 757040.htm It can be a long list so take your time with it. Test one or two before you go all out on it. Changes take effect immediately. You'll have to close and re-open add/remove programs to note any changes.

Quote:
Check if this is the cause of the missing options:

Go to Start => Run and type in "regedit" {without the quotes}
Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
\<Program Name here>

Some don't have a recognizable name, just a long series of letters and
numbers, but look in the right-hand pane at DisplayName.

In the right-hand pane:

Check if these values exist, and if so,

Double-click on 'NoRemove' and set its value to 0
Double-click on 'NoModify' and set its value to 0

If NoRemove is set to 1, the Remove button will be unavailable
If NoModify is set to 1, the Change button will be unavailable


*note - always make backups of your registry before editing. If you aren't comfortable editing your registry get someone who is, as changing your registry incorrectly can make some programs or even your entire computer inoperable.
