Unhappy Add/Remove Programs trouble

Morning all,

i find myself in a rather tricky situation. the add remove programs uninstall list is empty. only recently installed programs are shown.

perhaps through my ignorance the registry details relating to the uninstall list were deleted. having no clear registry backup - what shall i do?

any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

p.s. some of my programs have no uninstall .exe that come with them, they require Add/Remove programs.

That sucks. I have only encountered this once before, and that was about 3 min after installing AOL for a friend.

we ran a Repair on the partition from the Windows XP CD, and it worked, so I would try that.

Be sure to have your win 98 se disk handy
