Got an anomaly…! In my Add/Remove Programs..
A Big black box appears as if its a program..!
(Put a few JPEGs on site.. http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/willer/index.html )

And takes up 90% of the 'currently installed programs' box..!

Does not have Change/Remove button Visible.. So cant uninstall whatever it
is..?

Is there a way to manually remove it, or at least find out what it is..?

Tried Regclean and a few other utilities but no luck so far..!

Thanks For Any Help

Hi Andrew,
Scroll down to addremove-white space, I know yours is black but that doesn't
matter.
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_a.htm
run the auto cad fix and reboot.

in fact no information at all just big black block, even when selected.
can select program above and below to see their add/remove button, but none
for the black box..! Is it software from another dimension..?

You miss understand,go to the link I provided at kellys-korner once at this
link you will find a listing for add-remove and under that heading a
sub-listing for add-remove white space,there you will find two registry
fixes for your problem download them both and then run them,reboot
afterwards.;-)

From what I have read here in these newsgroups these fixes should work, even
if you don't have autocad installed.

I also saw in another group that you posted in a responce from David Candy
that fix should have worked as well,you mught want to go back to his reply
and follow the steps once again who knows its possiable that you might have
missed something?Good Luck!

Here is a script which lists all the negative icon references and sends them
to a log file
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/reg/ARPNegCheck.vbs

Download the VBScript and run it. When you see the log file, copy the
contents and paste them here.
