Add/Remove Programs choice missing from Control Panel

If I am trying to open Control Panel the add and remove programs doesnt appear. I know that its there somewhere because I can run appwiz.cpl and it appears. Can anyone tell me a way to restore it to the control panel list? Thanks.

You can try to right click a blank spot in the control panel folder and then New and then Shortchut and then put 'appwiz.cpl' in the command and name it "Add or Remove Programs". Hope this helps.

You can try to install a 3rd party software called MyUninstaller which will be able to remove the software that you want. Download it by searching it on the net.
