Hi I recently encountered with a problem. I just wanted to uninstall a program and when the add or Remove programs dialog box come up it said wait while the listed programs will be populated. But the programs never show up. Even after 15 minutes. I see only the white dialog box. And recently my system freezes up and I have to unplug the computer to shoot it down. I did a system restore It seems it helped with the froze-ups but I am still unable to uninstall programs. Does anyone have an idea what is happening? Any opinion will be much-appreciated thank you Laszlo .
