    Hello. I am running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. After removing PC Optimizer Pro and other stuff that re-directed my IE web browsing programs and features shows only five programs. I have well over 20 programs.
    sfc /scannow did see any problems.
    In REGEDIT under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall I just see these five programs.

    What can I do so I view all of my programs?

    Thank you for looking.

    Having lost the uninstallers, other than reinstalling the programs, I don't see how you'll get back those registry entries.

    Thank you Phantom010.

    I did a repair install using my Windows 7 disc and that didn't help. Yikes!

    It can't help since those programs were installed by you, and if not part of the operating system, it means you'll have to reinstall them.
