Add Remove Programs list incomplete

by whippetone - 7/25/08 2:05 PM

First let me say that I have searched high and low trying to fix this problem and I still have not found a solution here or on the web! I have already tried:
Add/Remove Programs tool displays installed programs incorrectly Article ID : 266668
on the Microsoft site and performed all the necessary steps but I still have the problem.
I know this problem was caused by a spyware infestation that I had and have now taken care of. I was able to get back the missing tabs on "Display Properties" but the list of my programs on my "Add/Remove" list is STILL a problem!
I run Windows XP Pro and my appwiz.cpl does run successfully, but the list remains incomplete. I do not have the "blank space" problem of some with a scroll bar on the side and the "Change/Remove" buttons are intact. I have checked and unchecked the "Show Updates" box but still the list is woefully incomplete.
I'm running CA Antivirus and Windows Defender. ANY help from ANYONE would be appreciated!!! Im NOT a computer pro or anything approaching that but I now have a rudimentary knowledge of Registries and such from trying to fix this problem Help!
