Default windows 2000 server reg. key errors...

This was weird, I try to goto add and remove programs and the list is empty and nothing is there. I did get a few reg. key errors and tried to fix them by doing the following I found on MS tech net:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
3. In the Command window, type regsvr32 mshtml.dll, and then press ENTER.
4. Click OK to confirm that the registry entry has been added.
5. In the Command window, type regsvr32 shdocvw.dll -i, and then press ENTER.
6. Click OK to confirm that the registry entry has been added.
7. In the Command window, type regsvr32 shell32.dll -i, and then press ENTER.
8. Click OK to confirm that the registry entry has been added.
9. Close the Command window.

But only 1 fix worked and I still cant see the add/remove programs list.
Also I use VNC to log into this win2000 server to do maintenance and normally it works fine but anytime I try to left click any desktop icons all it does it show me the properties of that icon...??
