Silly question but have you tried scrolling down right to the bottom of the list?

Try this first

Quote:"The fix for this, from Kelly's Korner, isolates the registry
entries for the Add/Remove Programs window, at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
It suggests that the white space is caused by a sub-entry of
that registry folder in which the program has an entry for
Display Icon which contains a negative number for the icon:
"C:\Program Files\Logitech\IM Video Companion\VideoIM.exe",-1
for example. Not all programs will have a Display Icon entry,
so it might not take too long to find the one that does. The
icon number should be a positive number, so just eliminating
the negative sign should work, or, if not, you could just
delete the Display Icon entry for that program. The rest of
the information should still load."


If that doesn't work there are more suggestions here click here

Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

yes VoG, and when you click at the bottom or anywhere under the last one that you can see its just a big blue area

he is trying the

sfc /scannow

now so hopefully it will help :) problem is, and ihave the same is that he didnt get a CD with his computer neither did i, maybe its a dell thing...

Your Windows files should be on your hard drive in a folder named 'i386'. If asked for the cd just browse to that folder.

i wondered about that. I must say i think its slihgly annoying how they dont provide a Recovery CD etc. Is it possible to make your own?

Use the link I provide to see how to get sfc to use the i386 folder on the hard drive.

  Ade_1 13:46 22 Jan 06

ok:)

My Dell had an option to burn a Windows XP cd on the Programs menu. I can't remeber exactly where it appeared but it was in one of the Dell folders. The option disappears once you have burned the cd. If you PC is fairly recent you may have the same option.
