Hello, and welcome to TSF,
Try Start>Run and type in scanreg /fix (there is a space between scanreg and /) See if that helps.

Alright, couple things to try and do:

Go to this site and download the Fix Add/Remove located just under the download link for Regseeker 1.35 Beta. You can also download Regseeker if you wish, it's a nice Registry cleaning tool. Just remember to always back up the registry before you do anything.

The missing Add/Remove is also syptomatic of spyware/malware. Please be sure to do the following so we can check your system:

If you haven't already, download, install, update immediately, then run AdawareSE. Make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results.

Then download, install, update immediately, click on 'Immunize' Spybot S&D.

Have each fix whatever problems they may find.

Next, run an online virus scan at TrendMicro or RAV Antivirus.
Please select the autoclean option when using Trend Micro.

Then get HijackThis . This program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Run the scan, save the log, but do not fix anything yet. Many files it finds are harmless, and required for your system to operate.

Post your log in a new thread in the HijackThis Log Help forum. This our dedicated spyware/virus forum. One of the expert analysts there will look over your log and assist you. Please include a brief description of the problem you are having and what you have done to fix it so far.

First of all I thank you very much.

Now all the applications are listed in Add-Remove programs. I tried with spyware and registry cleaner. It found working.

Thank you very much.

Good, I'm glad things are working for you now. It might be a good idea to post a Hijackthis log as suggested earlier so we can check for any spyware that may not show up in Spybot or AdAware.
