  1. "add or remove programs" in Vista home has disappeared from the Cntrol Pannel.
    Where can I find it elsewhere?
    Thank you

    You can run "appwiz.cpl" instead

    It is not called that anymore (changed in Vista, is still the changed name in 7 and 8 too).

    What you want is now called "Programs and Features".
