Click START...RUN...then type appwiz.cpl and click OK. If you have no luck you need to backup your registry and then edit it: Click START...RUN and then type regedit. Click OK.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Uninstall and look in the righthand pane for the below value:


If it is present, doubleclick on it and change the value data to 0 and reboot.

If it is not present, try creating it. Go to Edit > New > DWORD value and name it

When you have created it, doubleclick on it and set the value data to 0 and reboot.
