Add/Remove Programs Messed Up

When I try to go to Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel, I get a strange screen that says "Change or ProgramsAdd New ProgramsAdd/Remove Windows ComponentsSet Program Access and Defaults" across the top of the screen, with nothing else listed in the box.  I've checked to make sure I didn't have something messed up in my view settings, and everything is fine.  All other parts of Control Panel work as normal.  Help!

Thanks so much!  It ended up being 265829.  I didn't think about Internet Explorer 6.0 messing up Add/Remove Programs, but reinstalling IE fixed the problem.  Thanks again for the help!
