Often, when I bring up the add/remove programs control panel, I get the
following error:
"an unexpected error occurred

Class not registered

res://appwiz.cpl/listbox.htc
Line:225"

It then informs me that no programs are installed on my computer. I was
thinking that this might have something to do with the fact that windows is
not installed on the C: drive on my computer. Instead, due to my partion
set-up, windows is installed on my D: drive. Is there any way I can fix this?
I need to be able to uninstall some software...

Thanks,

Sanborne

From the "Run" box try;
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\appwiz.cpl

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\webvw.dll
to rebuild several *.htt files

If unsuccessful try
sfc /purgecache
sfc /scannow

Or try the regedits described in;

If the problem persists, you'll likely need to perform an in-place upgrade.
