    I have 2 weird things with my add/remove list of programs.
    The first is a game that I tried to install a long time ago. The game installed failed (was for windows 95/98. I run XP.) So I went to add/remove and it says "can't remove, it's not there", yet the name remains in add/remove. I did a search for remaining files, with no results.
    Also, my second oddity is a drafting software that hubby installed. When the add/remove list gets to this particular program there is a HUGE blank space until I reach the next program. When I highlight this particular program the entire blank space also highlights. This is annoying because to reach the remainder of the list we need to keep scrolling and scrolling and scrolling to get to the rest of the programs. Any ideas on how to clean either of these up?

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I've had a little personal disaster here, so I will try them when I can and let you all know how it goes.
