If your talking about the listed programs on your machine in Windows Add/Remove? If youve done a restore and nothing has happened then the computer is only listing whatever programmes youve installed. In other words if there are six programmes installed it will show only those six. It cannot possibly show anything or something other than that. If your sure you installed a particular programme and it didnt show up then you need help from Microsoft. They are display in that area for a purpose either the user wants to repair a software or uninstall it. Have I misunderstood your initial help?

This is probably the google toolbar for your web browser.

Re-install google toolbar (you can do this here).

Once it is installed, you can either leave it, or uninstall it again fully, from Add/Remove programs in you control panel. (or Programs and Features in the control panel if you are using Windows 7)

Tip

Add Remove Programs list is blank -- Windows 2000


Usually It happens due to some virus activity or any corruption in system files. So when you go to Add Remove Programmes, It shows nothing but a blank space.

· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 6.0 installed, repair Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.
· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5 installed, repair Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.

If the Add/Remove Programs tool still does not function properly, shows no content, or if you want to try to fix this issue without upgrading to later versions of Internet Explorer, check the following registry keys to make sure that they contain entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache
Note If the previous registry keys are blank, the Add/Remove Programs tool may also be blank.

Use the command line REGSVR32 [path\filename] to register each of the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtml.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Jscript.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msi.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\Oledb32.dll

%systemroot%\System32\Msdart32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtmled.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mswstr10.dll [not registerable]


If the Add/Remove Programs tool displays incomplete information or is blank, verify the file dates. Where possible, register the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Gdi32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\User32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msvcrt.dll [not registerable]

How do you uninstall a program from a palm treo 750?


You need activesync
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx

ActiveSync’s Tools >Add/Remove Programs screen lists all the programs that have been installed on your device. To uninstall a program, uncheck the box next to it and click on OK. To reinstall a program, click on the empty box next to it and click on OK. Do not click on the Remove button. Here's how to do it: If you used ActiveSync to install a third-party program to your Windows Mobile device, you can uninstall the program quickly from your PC.
  1. Make sure your Windows Mobile device is connected to your PC and ActiveSync is running.
  2. From the PC’s ActiveSync Window, click on Tools >Add/Remove Programs. This opens the “Add/Remove Programs” dialog box, which displays a list of third-party programs you have installed on your device.
  3. To uninstall any of the checked programs, click on the box to uncheck it and hit OK—ActiveSync will do the rest.

Reinstalling programs you’ve uninstalled Once you’ve installed a program using ActiveSync, the necessary installation files are saved on your PC. If you uninstall the program as described above, you can use the Add/Remove Programs menu to reinstall it at a later time. Uninstalled programs appear in the Add/Remove Programs list as items with unchecked boxes. To reinstall it, click on the check box next to it and hit OK. ActiveSync will reinstall the program automatically. Note that files in CAB format can be downloaded directly to a device and installed, so they will not appear in the Add/Remove Programs list. In addition, some freeware programs are installed by using ActiveSync’s Explorer to copy the program file to your device. Those also do not appear in the Add/Remove list. WARNING: Do not click on the “Remove” button at the bottom of the Add/Remove Programs screen unless you never again plan on using the program. This completely removes the necessary installation files from your PC and you won’t be able to reinstall the program by checking the box.

Fix it 10 software removal


Buy the program again install and un-install?
That is with out a doubt the most asinine thing I have ever heard. Ignore him and try booting into Safe mode then run the add /remove program. The software is simply loading with the system files and once activated is difficult to remove while the Fix-it files are running. Many spyware and Virus programs do the exact same thing.
Running in safe mode loads just the bare essential files Windows needs to run. All others are skipped..

If this fails, try downloading and installing Revo link here.
It will ask to search the registry for stray entries left behind. Let it do this, but be careful deleting the registry entries. Be sure it is a stray from the Fix-it utilities. You can usually tell by checking the entry displayed.

Revo is a powerful clean up tool.
It will TRY to use the programs un-installer first.
"Most installations set up a "un-installer" file.
If Revo does not find one, It will automatically go to the next phase and do it's best to locate all the bits and pieces and purge them.

Good luck!
Hope this helps!

Large space between apps in add/remove programs


Download tweak XP from the net, install it, run it, there is a tab named ADD/REMOVE programs, it DOES NOT add or remove programs, rather, it allows you to edit the Add/Remove program List only, so you should select the "blanks" and remove the from the list. ReClarify: IF you remove an entry from the Add/Remove tab using Tweak XP, It will no longer be available under windows control panel add/remove and if it IS still installed you will NOT have a way to remove the program.

Delete from add delete at control panel


The only way to modify the add/remove programs list is to edit the registry. If you are uncomfortable doing this, get someone to help who is, or just leave the registry alone.
It's best to back up the registry in case you make a mistake.
To back up your registry, see this article.

On to the fun part. Follow these instructions exactly. Note: this applies to Windows XP only. If you have Windows Vista, please modify the question.
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK.
  3. In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
  4. In the left pane, click the Uninstall registry key, and then click Export on the File menu.
  5. In the Export Registry File dialog box that appears, click Desktop in the Save in list, type uninstall in the File name box, and then click Save.
  6. Each key listed under Uninstall in the left pane of Registry Editor represents a program that is displayed in the Currently installed programs list of the Add or Remove Programs tool. To determine which program that each key represents, click the key, and then view the following values in the details pane on the right: DisplayName: The value data for the DisplayName key is the name that is listed in Add or Remove Programs.

    -and-

    UninstallString: The value data for the UninstallString key is the program that is used to uninstall the program.
  7. After you identify the registry key that represents the program that you removed but which is still displayed in the Currently installed programs list of Add or Remove Programs, right-click the key in the left pane of the Registry Editor window, and then click Delete.

    Click Yes in response to the "Are you sure you want to delete this key and all of its subkeys?" message.
  8. On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
  9. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.

    In the Currently installed programs list, verify that the program whose registry key you deleted is no longer listed.
  10. Do one of the following:
    • If the program list is not correct in Add or Remove Programs, double-click the Uninstall.reg file that you saved to your desktop in step 5 to restore the original list of programs in the registry.

      -or-
    • If the program list is correct in Add or Remove Programs, right-click the Uninstall.reg file on your desktop, and then click Delete.

Programs missing from add/remove list


Once you have the "Add or Remove Programs" window open look at the left side and make sure you have "Change or Remove Programs" selected. Also make sure you have the checkbox ticked that says "Show Updates".

As for the other programs in the list without the chage / remove option. You need to first click on the progam in the list to show that option.
