EEK!

I keep trying to go into the Add or Remove Programs feature of my father's new laptop to remove some programs he doesnt want.

The only problem that happens is a message appears saying

"Parser Message, Value Creation Failed" at Line 521"

The laptop runs Windows XP SP2.

I tried using various themes for the laptop, and also re-starting it.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Switch to Windows XP Theme and try opening Add/Remove.

Cannot open Add Remove programs
I go into the control panel and click on add remove programs and nothing happens. I have scaned for virus and ran spyware removal tools. It seems to have started when I inadvertently swithed on automatic updates.
