    Uninstall programs


    When I used to go to program and features to uninstall a program it would have all the programs listed.
    Now when I go there it just has Microsoft C++ programs listed, and Microsoft office.
    How do I get back all the programs installed, that it showed before.
    Thank you for your help on this, I have a dell inspiron 660s, windows 8.
