After doing a full scandisk and defrag, I came upon a thing. I don't know
what it is or how it happend but in the Add/Remove Programs box where the
programs are listed there is a section that is completely taken over by a big
black box that takes up the entire width and a large vertical portion as
well. The program list stops right before and starts right after the box, but
the thing is so MASSIVE I have to scroll down or up so much to get past it. I
have some screen shots if anyone thinks they can help. Serious inquiries only
please. Jakal_Owns@hotmail.com I hope there is a solution to this. Thank you

Hi,

What is the last program listed and the first after the black box? In the
meantime:

Remove the White Space from Add or Remove (line 226) Right hand side

Go to Start/Run and type in:
Expand C:\i386\NETOC.IN_ -r C:\Windows\Inf

Add or Remove Programs tool appears to stop responding after you remove the
security update that is documented in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-015

Is it just add/remove program that's big or is everything else bigger?
Your screen resolution may have changed. If that's the case, check your
display properties. I don't know how defrag would affect that. I have
seen scandisk do something similar. I once ran scandisk on a corrupted
drive. In the process of fixing the drive, my windows profile was
deleted but it created a new profile. I had to change the settings
again to match my original profile.
