    Add Remove Programs (Win XP SP2)

    When I open the Add Remove Programs list box, from the control panel, I get the installed application list with one problem. The list has a hugh section with nothing listed. When you start at the top I have 4 applications listed then I get blank section in the list until I scroll down to the bottom of the list where the remaining 50 or so applications are listed. I have tried sorting the list with the provided options, but none have any effect on this large empty section in the middle. I have tried uninstalling the applications on either side of the space and re-installing them again after rebooting, but the space remains. The attached screen captures display what I am seeing. is there anything I can do to fix this??? I have this problem on a couple of computers .

    Thanks to all. for your support.
    Special thanks to "tony55" for his link
    Check line 226, right hand column in Kellys Korner - XP Tweaks and Fixes, which provided a VB script to resolve the problem. which appears to have been related to the installation of Autocad application.
