This is weird!!
Everytime I go into Add/Remove programs (via Control Panel) it will only display program titles from A to E and nothing more!
The scroll bar on the right callows me to continue well past the E-titled program entries but there's just blank screen where all the other programs should be listed -- any ideas/suggestions?!!

With W2k and XP it is rendered in XML (I think it's called). With W2k my scroll wheel does not work in it because of that. The entries are kept in the registry so possibly running a registry cleaner may fix your problem.

well,its a sign of a corupt registry rather then one with redundant entries.

Do you have a recent backup of your registry by any chance?

No I don't have a clean backup of the registry -- should I use a registry cleaner?
And, if so what one?
