Howdy! When trying to execute the Add/Remove Programs control panel in a newly installed Windows 2000, SP4 server box, nothing happens. The window flashes but the Add/Remove programs control panel never opens. I am logged in as a Domain Administrator. If I look at the process list, I can see an instance of MSHTA.EXE running for each time I double-click Add/Remove. I've tried killing all the MSHTA.EXE processes and starting over but that has no effect. I've rebooted. I've re-applied SP4. I'm out of ideas...
