All text is missing from the Add/Remove applet in Control Panel

Hi, I am trying to uninstall a program from a Windows Server 2000 machine w/ SP4.  When I open up the Add/Remove Programs applet in Control Panel I see the icons for the various programs that are installed, but there is no text to identify what they are!  The few that have that "Support Info" link when you highlight them say nothing.

This obviously shouldn't be this way, but it's particularly frustrating because all I have to do is a simple upgrade, but I can't run the software upgrade, and the programs doesn't have an uninstall option itself.

Please help.

If all else fails do a Start --> Run --> appwiz.cpl

This was in fact the issue ... after a botched update to IE through WSUS, this issue appeared.  All I had to do was to rerun the IE 6 install/update, after the reboot the Add/Remove applet was fixed.
