ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS Folder is CORRUPTED

Help, I don't know how it happened but my Add Remove Programs Folder is all
messed-up. I is filled with items like: CCScore, ESSSdpt, ESSCAM, and a bunch
of other ESS listings. Also nothing has REMOVE buttons. Is there a way to
rebuild my ADD REMOVE Folder? I tried Sys Restore, didn't work.


(I have SP2 already installed)

Start here, Dave:

Run Ad-Aware SE, Spybot, CWShredder and HijackThis:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html

Note: Update the first two programs, once installed, before running.

Free Online Virus Scan
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Good luck and keep us posted!

I run Ad-Aware and SpyBot everyday. I also run MS Anti-Spyware and Norton
Antivirus. My system is as clean as I can get it.

But, I think it was corrupted after I did a Norton Update.

I myself do not trust AdAware and certainly not Norton. It will not hurt to
run some other apps such as Kelly suggested. You can also run Sysclean_FE
from the following site below

Hi Peter,

Which issues have you had with AdAware? I have no complaints at all. As
for Norton, beings I am a southern lady, I will make no comment at this
time. :o)

System Restore is a lost cause,, last week I cleaned out ALL my old restore
points. Is there no way to rebuild the folder?
