black :hotbounce Hi From Canada.....Didn't quite get where I can post so I'm going to put it here for now. To anyone who's add and remove programs won't populate........You're probably on a torrent site and use a separate disk for down and uploading......Chances are its a hardware problem . Try saving the stuff on the disk and reformatting the storage disk. Then put it back on . Notice that if a certaing file hangs or won't respond when you go to save it somewhere else its probably the file or folder thats causing the problem in the first place. Just go on to the next file that will move with no problem. When you have moved all files that you can just disregard the ones that are "Stuck". Right-Click on "My Computer" hit "Manage" choose "Disk Management" on the left and right-click on the drive in question on the right and choose "Delete Partition". Once this is done right-click on the drive again and choose New Partition and follow the instructions. I usually choose "Quick Format". When done go to add and remove programs and see if it will populate. Conclusion............It seems when there is a file stuck somewhere that you can't access no matter what, it affects the control panel. At least this is what I think and it worked for me..........Hope this info is useful and have a nice day!
