Hello all, i have Windows XP, which i recently had to restore to a previous point recently. Since then, when i go into Control Panel, i have 4 Add/Remove programs Icons! They all show the same stuff and i was just wondering how to remove some of the icons? They havent being causing me any problems, but would just like to remove them!
Thanks for any help anyone can give me!

Assuming they all do what they should do - open the Add/Remove Programs list, can't you simply right click on three of them and Delete.

Check that the remaining one works and then do a clean up with CCleaner

Do a search for appwiz*.cpl, remove any that are not actually appwiz.cpl itself (ie copy of appwiz.cpl, appwiz.cpl(2) etc) - or use TweakUI to hide the extra ones.

Hello clapton, sorry ,no, if you right click the icon, it just comes up with open or create shortcut!
