    Large gap in installed programs and updates list (

    When I open "Installed Programs and Updates", there is a large gap filled with two black vertical bands somewhere halfway programs installed beginning with a "D". By scrolling right near the bottom of the list I see the remaining installed software. So, everything is there! How to get rid of those two black bands? (How to compact?)

    Leif,

    It did not help. There are no orphaned entries. I checked with JV tools and the entries are identical. So it probably is some funny setting in the registry. But where? Any Idea?

    Tony,

    The message is:

    "Add or Remove - White Space

    This is generally due to the DisplayIcon having a negative number. From here you can either remove the negative number or remove the last application listed: Start/Run/Regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionUninstall{}"

    There is a large list, probably one entry for each installed program. All entries consist of long HEX numbers between the {}, but none starts with a - (minus) sign. Any other suggestions?
