Hi.

Recently my add/remove programs has been really strange. There's no 'remove' buttons, so I can't uninstall the programs. It used to be fine, but I don't know what's happened now. Also, some programs that used to be on the list aren't even on it, and 'WebFldrs XP' never used to be on it. I've attached a screenshot.

Are you running as the computer administrator? If you aren't, you probably don't have proper privileges to uninstall the app. If that doesn't work, you can try going to your program files located in local disk, and then locate the folder that app you want to uninstall is associated with. Usually programs have their own little setup that will allow you to click on the icon in the folder and manually remove it.
