Can't run the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet


Can't  run the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet
 The Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet might stop running if your system is
missing some required registry entries. To resolve this problem, you must add the
necessary entries to the registry by performing the following steps:

   1. Start a command session by going to Start, Run and typing

      cmd

   2. Enter each of the following commands (click OK to each
confirmation that appears):

      regsvr32 mshtml.dll
      regsvr32 shdocvw.dll -i
      regsvr32 shell32.dll -i

   3. Close the command session by typing

      exit

You should now be able to start the Add/Remove Programs applet. If the applet still
won't run, you might be missing a file; to check, use the system file checker (SFC) to
check for and replace missing or corrupt files by performing the following steps:

   1. Start a command session by going to Start, Run and typing

      cmd

   2. Enter each of the following commands (the system might prompt
you to enter the installation media during this process):

      sfc /purgecache
      sfc /scannow

   3. Restart the computer.
