I am running XP (home) SP2 fully patched.
I have just had a situation when I wanted to remove an application and used Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs.
It gave the 'waiting for the list to be populated' message and then just stayed blank for nearly 30 minutes.
I have deleted three programs using their Uninstall entries in their All Programs entry, and the list is now being populated.
Is there some limit to just how many entries the Add/Remove applet can handle, or is there some way it can be made to handle more?
Yes, I know I have a lot of entries (i.e. programs) but I don't want to have to delete some in order to install others. I thought we were past things like that?
