I have Windows Server 2008 (64) as a domain controller in a small research group.  We need to remove a program.  The Control Panel is "empty" and I can't find "Programs and Features" suggested by Help.  There is no uninstall option on the software. How can I remove this program?  Thanks.

"Add/Remove programs" is now called "Programs and Features" located in the control panel .

Unfortunately, when I click on the Control Panel there are no icons and only the phrase "This folder is empty."

Are you patched up to date?  What AV program are you using?  Does it do the same in Safe mode?

Thanks for your thoughts.
Our patches are up-to-date.  
We are not running any AV programs. I was a little misleading in saying that the icons don't show up.  In "Control Panel Home" I see all ten icons....from System and Maintenance to Additional Options.  When I click on "Programs" I get "There are no items to display."
I ran "appwiz.cpl" without error message, but without effect.  Remember we're running 64 Server 2008.

Thanks for the tip.  The Uninstall Tool 2.7.2 appears to have done the job.
