I just got off from the HijackThis Forum so I can assure you this is not a malware problem, though it seems to be the aftermath of a malware problem. I need to fix/reinstall Add or Remove Prgrams or do something to make it display right. Refer to the screenshots I took for more detail.

Try here

Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

This is probably the quickest but you can try this first if you want

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue bar, reboot when the bar goes

I reinstalled Windows XP. Add or Remove Program is still the way it is. I need another solution.

Try a System Restore to a point before this happened.

Edit: I found this link.

Am going to have to look for this, reinstalling XP should cover most things

Get CCleaner here

http://www.filehippo...d_ccleaner.html

Run it then click tools to see if its uninstaller will let you remove things

If not, get tune-up trial here

http://www.tune-up.com

Run it then click administer and control to see if tune up uninstall manager will remove programmes
