Something has happened such that the list of programs in my add or remove programs window has depopulated. Many programs that used to be there aren't any longer, and some that are there now were not there before.

This happened once before, I did a system restore, and the problem was solved. This time system restore won't restore my computer to any of its restore points.

Is there any way to repopulate the list in add or remove programs?

My hijackthis log appears below:

Hello,

I can't see anything suspicious in your log though..

Something has happened such that the list of programs in my add or remove programs window has depopulated. Many programs that used to be there aren't any longer, and some that are there now were not there before.


Have you been using a registry cleaner? Or used another tool to access add/remove programs and to delete programs from there? This because some add/remove program tools (Hijackthis has this option as well), do have the option to delete entries from add/remove. So it deletes it from the Uninstall list, but the program itself can still be uninstalled if you know the right uninstall command - or know where the uninstaller is located. In most cases, the uninstaller is located in the directory where the program is installed.

Unfortunately, when you did use a regcleaner or another add/remove programs tool and selected to delete entries, you can't restore them anymore - they are gone.
