Two problems, Are they related? RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1) control panel

    Go to Control panel and open 'Add /remove Programs. The 'window' for this opens with the note 'Please wait while the list populates'

    Well 30 minutes is enough waiting for me!!Can this be rectified? 

    2) thought i would try and go to an earlier restore point.

    Tried several including the one when the HDD was upgraded and windows XP reinstalled. All tell me the restore point is unobtainable, despite all the dates being in bold

    Any suggestions?

    Would a 'reapir install cure it, and would i lose anything at all  eg messages in OE and letters/excel sheets produced since reinstal

    Thanks for any help
