All the other functions work in Control panel except for "Add or Remove
Program".

Any clues as to why?

Note: i keep my Norton Viruses updated and use the Microsoft Beta Spyware
program in the background.

Try typing this into "Run" dialog box (under Start menu):

"*appwiz.cpl*" (without quotes of course)

What happens? Does it open now?

I would scan the core files of Windows with the System File Checker:
"Description of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 System File Checker
(Sfc.exe)" (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310747)

Thanks for spending the time the advice. I tried the first advice to use the
sfc.exe and I was able to use the add or remove programs window.
