    Missing Program information/details in Add/Remove programs


    Click image for larger version

    I recently used IOBit uninstaller to remove all traces of a program from the registry. I'm assuming it removed something that caused this issue, because after I used it all my program information in Add/Remove programs was missing. However, other users on my PC show all information in Add/Remove programs. Is there a way to repopulate this or would I have to create a new user? Thank you

    Use a restore point before this happened.

    I would get rid of IoBit.

    Revo Uninstaller works good.
    I have the Pro version & have never had a problem with it.

    so, somehow my problem was magically solved with Revo. i installed revo then used it to uninstall some old programs on my PC. after uninstalling I used the registry cleaner as well. restared my PC and everything is back. i have no idea but i'm marking it as solved. thanks
