Re: Uninstall option disappeared
I have a similar problem. When I open Control Panel programs do not display
properly, you cannot uninstall/repair or change.
I did a system restore but would not complete. I did a startup repair. I did
a full scan.
Everything works. Startup gave a clean bill of health. But I would like the
control panel to work normally.
I am using Vista Home Premium.
