    The Programs & Features option of my Control Panel on Windows Vista no longer lists all my programs, and when I highlight one of the programs that does appear, the Uninstall option does not show up. How can I fix this? Thanks.

    Kenny, thanks. I downloaded Revo, but I see that it too lists less than half the programs I have installed. I opened several programs that don't appear in the list and those I tried still work. One that does appear, Skype, will not open, which is why I was trying to uninstall it. I thought if I uninstalled and reinstalled that might solve the problem. I'm uninstalling it now with Revo, but there's still the problem of all the programs that aren't showing up. Any suggestions what to do? Thanks.

    Did you use a registry cleaner or some other "tool" to optimize your machine, supposedly? You need to restore what that program butchered out of your registry and get rid of it before you lose everything else. Your system is almost certainly damaged beyond repair already and many new problems will appear in the future.

    If you can't do that, use a Restore Point.
