    Hello you really nice people. Since you have helped me on several occasions, I thought I'd try one more time.:D

    I don't know exactly when it happened; however, at some point after I installed winXP as a dual boot and have been trying out some dvd burning software, I cannot add/remove programs in win2000... it states that "no programs are currently installed on this computer."

    I have tried spybot (which found a few things and have been repaired)... I have tried Norton PC Doctor (which found a few things, all of which could not necessarily be repaired) and as a last resort I downloaded a freeware program Add/Remove Programs to get my program uninstalled.

    In the midst of all this, I foolishly installed service pack 4 and then had to promptly uninstall it (I think it was a conflict with my video capture card -- got the blue screen of death at reboot [even in safe mode!!]). I was able to uninstall that because I had the good sense to back up and let it give me the uninstall option.

    Any other ideas ??? I am going blind trying to follow the msn knowledge base suggestions checking the registry...

    I don't know what information you need from me to try and help me out, so if you need any logs or stuff that I see other people post, please let me know how to capture that information for you as well... I'm pretty computer smart, just not really troubleshooting experienced... in other words, I just build em and learn as I go along.

    For starters:

    PIV 1.8 Mgz
    1 G pc133 memory
    Windows 2000 Pro/dual booting with winXP Pro
    Ide boot drive
    ata 100 storage drive
    4 scsi a/v drives (external raid using adaptec 2940)
    scsi cd rom
    scsi jaz
    sony DRU-500AX dvd writer
    video capture card (dv500 plus from pinnacle)
    4x agp video card

    Oh.. yea... and to complicate matters, the floppy port on the mother board is fried.

    HELP !!!!!... Please :)

    I'm bumping this up... I still have found no solutions... I've run Norton PC Doctor and WinDoctor... spybot... housecalls... I've reinstalled 2000 to repair and still no luck....

    Someone out there has to know how to resolve this stupid error. I just know it's something simple that I don't know about... or as I always say... it's just something stupid... it almost always is.

    Help please???????????
