cannot open "add/remove programs" in control panel
I was trying to uninstall a software that I just now installed which told the user to use Add and Remove Programs in Control Panel to remove it. But the issue is that I am not able to open Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue? I am the admin of this computer and nobody else.
Have you tried going to Start > Run and then pasting the below command and then pressing enter:
After doing that check whether you are able to open add/remove programs or not?

Go to Start > Run and type:
then OK. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\Uninstall and look in the righthand pane for the below value:
If it is present, doubleclick on it and change the value data to "0" (without the inverted comma's) and reboot.
If it is not present, try creating it. Go to Edit > New > DWORD value and name it:
When you have created it, doubleclick on it and set the value data to 0 and reboot.
