    Add/Remove (WinXP Home)

    Working on a buddy's computer and while trying to REMOVE a program "Spamcatcher" I went to Control Panel/Add/Remove programs, but when I scrolled down the list it ended in some Microsoft files and any programs beyond those starting with the letter "M" did not appear. How can I retrieve the remainder of the list?

    Thank you and Season's Greetings to all you Good Lounge Folks.

    You could try installing Safarp - a small and fast alternative to the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel applet of Windows 2000/XP. It displays a list of the installed programs and allows one to uninstall / repair them. It might work where the native Add/Remove fails to.

    Again THANX MUCHO. Will try one or both after the Xmas break. I'm scared to death of fooling around with the Registry.

    I just recently installed Revo Uninstaller Freeware and haven't had a chance to use it yet. I thought I found it via The Lounge but I can't find the post just now. If nothing else, its display of installed stuff is nice, sortable and has a few alternate views.
