I'm running Win XP Home SP3. when I open control panel then Add/Remove
Programs the click on the Add/Remove button, I get the usual display of
programs but NO Change/Remove button when a program is selected. Stops me
cold. :( 

I get only a date last used, size, etc.

Thanks for all help.

Interesting. There is no Service Pack 3 for Windows XP.

Are you doing this as a user with administrative access?

From a search, AmericanTechie and Wesley Vogel had this to say on a similar
issue:

Kelly has a possible solution for this problem listed at her website.
Try line 337 at the website listed below.

Some applications in Add/Remove Programs list are missing
Change and Remove buttons

Hoe that helps you.

There no "Programs" listed in the last step of the procedure.

So..?!
Not the left side of 337 - the right.. Where it says:
" Restore Change or Remove Programs "

So you are saying that is you run "regedit" and go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
and then click on the (+) to the left of the word "Uninstall" to change it
to a (-) and look at the sub-listings under "Uninstall", there is nothing
there? At all? No names of applications and no strange sets of
numbers/letters like "{644F9DBE-CEDB-45AF-ACB8-E26692B74F61}" that you can
then click on (one at a time) and look on the right side of the window to
find the entries " NoRemove " and/or " NoModify "?!

There are strange sets of #/letters. And the name of only one Program.
There were only two entries that had "NoModify" entries. I changed these
from "1" to "0".
No change in problem.

I have also run (from Command Prompt) the sfc.exe series of procedures
without change to my problem.

I appreciate your helping.

In Add/Remove Programs, it seems like only the items recently installed or
updated have the Change/Remove option.

Hmm - really bizarre.. I will keep researching - but for now I am out of
ideas.
