Dianeangel, I'm having a different problem in this area. When I click the
remove button in the add/remove program to get rid of an unwanted application
I get a
message that the file cannot be found. When somebody offers a solution to
your problem -- maybe they can help me with mine!

There is a program called Add-Remove Pro which will deal with that. I think
it's freeware. A Google search results in several download sites.
