Something weird in Add/Remove Programs

One of my users has a hugh gap in his Add/Remove Programs list (see attachments). The 1st pic is the top of the list, and the second is toward the bottom of the list. Take note of the position of the scroll bar. Notice that in both pics it is Very small and in pic 2 how far down it is. I have an app that can manually remove items from this list I’m planning on using it. But I was wondering if anyone has seen this before.

Thanks in advance

Hiya and welcome

Are you still having this problem? If so, do you know if the user has any programs beginning with B on his pc, or is the gap just that, a gap?

Have you seen this:

When you install and uninstall programs, the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel may display the installed programs incorrectly. The Currently installed programs box may contain only a single text string, or may display a large blank space before the program entries. Other display problems may include that there are no listed programs.

If you need any help on the above, just ask. Also, you may want to create a restore point, before you look at the Registry:
