I have no idea how I did this, but here goes. My Add/Remove Programs is missing Programs that I have in my startup menu. So I go to the startup and try to open one. error: "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". So of course I start freaking, but if I go under my Crive to program files there all there. This was like Microsoft Office (all of them Word, Excel, Powerpoint, ect) and then there were others that I wasn't worried about like Abbyy Fine Reader. Where did they go and how did I lose them from the program list. Also I still have all of their icons listed in my startup menu I just can't open them. If anyone can help me fix this problem I would appreciate it. By the way, I'm running Windows XP SP3 on a Dell inspiron 1100.
