    Hi all,

    My first entry into this Lounge area.

    I have a strange problem that I saw once before several years ago, but can't remember the cause nor the solution.

    New PC, new OS (XP Pro) install. I have done these types of installs many times.

    All seems to be running fine with no problem.

    The Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs screen shows the first 10-15 items installed fine. However, when I scroll further down, all I get is several vertical blue lines. No text. And this scrolls down to the bottom. So I can't see any more of the programs installed on the PC.

    Anyone see anything like this before?

    thanks

    Often when this happens a registry key or data value of key at

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Uninstall

    is corrupted or has a value that is > 255 characters long in the "Display name".
