  1. Hi,

    I've been using my computer for a long time now and have Windows XP on it. It's working absolutely fine but the only problem i've got is that whenever i go to the Add/Remove programs in the control panel it shows only 4 or 5 items listed there. I remember checking it a few weeks ago and it had a list of programs but now it have only 4 or 5 programs listed on it.
    I haven't uninstalled anything from my computer and the hard disk have been formatted 1 month ago only.
    I don't think it's any spyware or any virus in the computer but i think some settings have got changed which is why it's happening.
    Can anybody tell what could be a possible reason for this to happen. My computer is less likely to have any malware on it coz i keep checking it frequently. I have zonealarm firewall. And also i haven't used internet a lot since i reformatted my hard drive.

    Please Help!
