i can create active x objects to access registry and display information like the version of your Java plugin etc etc.

first - where can i find the list of software that is displayed in add/remove programs?
second - how can i loop through this list and display it?

my code:

<script language="JavaScript">
var activeXDisabled = false;
var shell;

      shell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");

      if (shell != null)
      activeXDisabled = true;
