Solved uninstall tab missing from programs and features in vista

August 13, 2013 at 19:49:10
Specs: Windows Vista
Wish to uninstall programs but the only tabs present in programs and features are the "organize" and "view" tabs. there are no "uninstall", "change" or "repair" commands.
Where have the "uninstall" etc. command tabs gone to and how do I get them back?

✔ Best Answer
I came across this problem a while ago and eventually found it was an issue with a corrupted registry so the first thing to try, if it's only recently happened, is a System Restore. If that doesn't work then the only option I found was to use a 3rd party uninstaller like Revo or possibly CCleaner (though I suspect the latter uses the same registry entries so may not work). You may find that it's only older programs that have the problem, newer ones will probably still have the option and programs you reinstall or install fresh will also be ok. I suspect it's one of the joys of Vista.

Have you tried double clicking the program entry instead?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
