    When I goto the add/remove in vista I noticed there are hardly any programs
    listed..maybe 7-8 programs available for removal...i want to remove office
    2007 trial and it doesn't show up...however when i boot into safe mode they
    are there. Can someone offer some suggestions?

    Do you have different users? You may have them in several user id's and you
    may logon as administrator in safe mode.
    Uninstall them in safe mode.

  3. Are you going under the main administrator account or under a guest account?
    It may just be a permission issue.

    I have only 1 user and the laptop is only 2 weeks all extra programs
    were installed under the same user...I should be able to see them all as
    administrator right?

    You are probably signing on as administrator in safe mode, in regular mode,
    administrator is disabled by default.

    Are you sure? There is a difference between administrator and
    administrative user in Vista, a distinction that did not exist in XP
