Here's a strange problem.

I recently installed windows 2000 on a new PC. everythign went fine, until i wanted to reomve some software I had installed.

Add/Remove Programs was not there.


Any ideas how i can get it back????

Theres quite a few reasons why this can happen, the most common is its been hidden by some 3rd party tweak.

Add/Remove Programs = Appwiz.cpl. This is the file name for Win NT and should be the same for 2000.

The file resides in C:\Windows\System, so check to see if it's there first. File will be on your OS CD.

ahh - that's the problem

When I was installling it, it complained that the file was missing or corrupted, but I continued without it anyway. I guess the CD is scratched. I'll copy it across from another computer.
