Default Void in Add or remove programs...

Hi!

When I open 'Add and remove programs' menu, is too much white space (140
clicks on the vertical scroll bar) between the last programs started with the
letter A and first program started with the letter B. Thereafter, all normal.
How can I fix this, please?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried clicking on 'show updates' and sort by to see if that
corrects the problem?

The Old New Thing : Why does Add or Remove Programs show a large blank
space?
http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/ar...26/422076.aspx

Often it is an icon listed with a -1, as described in the article.

Do you have AutoCad installed but not listed in Add or Remove Programs?
It causes this symptom too. There is a specific fix for that on Kelly's

Taken from http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_a.htm

Add or Remove - White Space

AutoCad Fix
Autodesk Land Desktop 3 Fix

This is generally due to the DisplayIcon having a negative number. From here you can
either remove the negative number or remove the last application listed:
Start/Run/Regedit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\{}

Point-in-fact :- the "-" sign does not denote a negative number but rather,
specifies that the index of the icon refers to it's numerical name - without this,
the index would refer to it's absolute position in the library.

e.g. 1 :

In the icon library "myicons.dll" -
Icon0 Absolute position = 0 numerical name = 1
Icon1 Absolute position = 1 numerical name = 2
Icon2 Absolute position = 2 numerical name = 3

to specify Icon1 you can use either :
myicons.dll,1
myicons.dll,-2

As they both refer to the same icon in the library. As does;

e.g. 2 :

%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,69
%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-151
