As the title says I have lost the text in the add remove programmes box
The icons down the left hand side

Change or remove programmes
add new programmes
add remove windows components
set programme access defaults

Is what they should say.

Not sure what ive done but does anyine know how to get the text back ?

Maybe its a change I made in tweak ui but I have looked and cannot see anything in there

Just ran the windows xp repair and although my pc now boots up to desktop in 70 seconds instead of the 140 seconds it used to take there is still no text showing :)
Anybody else got any ideas ?

Wow. Have you tried: Start -> Run... -> sfc /scannow
It'll restore system files to their original state. Any fishy activity going on other than that?

Howdy bushiee. :)

I have an idea. Sometimes if you use any of the following colour schemes, the icon text can vanish:

1. Brick
2. Red
3. White & Blue

Are you using any of the above? If so, try changing and see if it brings the text back.

If not, we will go from there. :)
