Since I installed SP3 last week, I cannot open my add/remove program. I don't know if its related to downloading this, but this program will not open. Can anyone help? Thanks.

What edition of windows? If pro, start, run, eventvwr.msc and look for the event right after failing to open add/remove programs.

Thanks auscanzukus, but I corrected the problem. I couldn't open a few other programs neither, so I reloaded my Win. XP Home Ed. CD and reloaded some more files. I guess some of my registry files were deleted some how, by a program that I loaded last month, that cleans your registry, so no more of that! I took the program off of my computer. If anyone wants to know what the program was, let me know, because I didn't really want to mention them right now, because I hate talking bad about a company.
