    box is not working correctly on my machine. When going to control panel, and selecting Add/Remove Programs, the box comes up as it is supposed to do. However, it does not have the button to remove the program. It has a box on the right that states the size of the program, but it does not have the remove program box. Don't understand what happened to it. Anyone seen this problem before. I am using Windows XP Home, with SP2 installed and every update completed as of today. Thanks for any assistance you may be able to give.

    Which program is it and does it have any other boxes there? "Repair", etc?

    Some programs don't have a "Remove" button by design. This page might provide you with some helpful information.
