  1. That is basically the problem. I open Add/remove programs and this section has nothing listed. The other areas are fine. Thanks in advance for any help.

    How long are you waiting? Sometimes on my computer it takes a few minutes for anything to show up. anyway try leaving it on a couple minutes and see what happens.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Filard.

    Go HERE and read my post.

    Perhaps doing a repair install of your os would help. I`m assuming that you are either running Windows XP or 2000.

    Instructions on how to do this can be found HERE.

    If you do a repair you will have to do all the Windows updates again after you have finished.

    Regards Howard :) :)

    Hey Puppet. I left it on for like 10 minutes and still nothing. Thanks for the reply though. I think I am going to try to do that repair that Howard suggested.

    On the add/remove programs screen, there is a checkbox 'show updates' which by default is on. With it off, you only see the non-microsoft installs. But it's not that simple is it?

    :knock: :knock: -- this is a very old thread. Please start a current one for yourselves :)

    ps: nothing in the ADD/Remove means \windows\$ntUninstallxxxxx$ files are missing.
