Add/Remove program When list of programs loads, there are very few displayed. The remainder of the window is blank. Where'd they go? How can I repair it. Rolling back system restore points hasn't helped.

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?

Toshiba A75-S1253 running 3.2 GH 448 Ram runs very slow


When windows starts it loads some programs, services and etc. When you install new software it might starts automatically when windows starts and might be displayed in tray. For example Antivirus software, audio driver and etc. To view the list of startup programs go to start menu. if you have xp hit run and type "msconfig" without ", if you have 7 type "cmd" in search field, when it finds program click on it and then in black windows type "msconfig". It will open new window. Go to StartUp tab and see what programs start automatically with windows. There might be useless programs which should be disabled. Also this list is good target for viruses.
If the list is small enough and few programs are listed, Consider that long time use of widnows decrease system performance. In this case you should reinstall windows.
And one more thing. In My Computer on desktop check free space of system disk (generally c:). There should be enough space to create temporary files and etc.

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!

Turn on, asks for password, computer works for a min & blank scre


If you keep pressing F8 before Windows starts to load it should display a menu, if you choose "safe mode" it may then load into Windows. If you're using WinXP you can try a system restore - click start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. It should display a calendar. Click on any date in bold and restore to that date. It may solve the problem for you. Did you install a new game or anything just before it went wrong?
