Remove whitespace from add/remove programs

A while ago we published this little utility that cleans up a messed-up add/remove programs display with huge gaps of white space in. Here's a new link to that utility: Freeware utility

This is a small utility that cleans up the registry in those cases where huge gaps of whitespace is displayed in the add/remove programs control panel applet. The gap is caused by a badly formatted "DisplayedIcon" entry in the uninstall area of the registry or a bad icon file. We read about the cause in Raymond Chen's blog and decided to write this tool that cleans up the registry entries. You can download, use and distribute it for free. The .exe is only 32kb but needs .NET installed.
