Windows 7: Can't Uninstall software from "Uninstall a program", link won't work

Can't Uninstall software from "Uninstall a program", link won't work

Firstly, sorry for any possible interruption


I have the following problems and they seem to insist despite many of the solutions I've tried:
It must be something wrong with Control Panel / Programs / Programs and Features:
* Uninstall a program
* Turn windows features on or off
* View installed updates

-> I cant uninstall a program, the uninstall a program does nothing.
-> I'm trying to open "turn windows features on or off" and it says Bad image: -> osbaseln.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.
-> Also pressing the "View installed updates" shows the following error: Windows cannot find '::_26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064}....: -//- }' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.



I remember having the problem after installing the latest updates. I tried system restore days before the event and the problems still insist. I'm not sure if this is the cause but it was as far as I can remember the last 'modification' for the system. I sure I did a disk defragment, browsing the web but I don't think this will affect the system.

And I'm sure I don't visit any 'weird' sites, mostly university forums, but just to be sure I scanned the whole computer with AVG. It found nothing as it always does. I've never had a virus issue from the first day I installed Windows 7, and it's almost 2 years since then.

I tried sfd /scannow but it sais Windows Resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them.

I'm running Windows 7 Professionally 64bit. I don't know what to say more.

I wish I could get some help while I think I'm out of ideas, and I really don't want to format right now.


Thank you in Advance.

I am having the exact same problem. It used to work fine and now I can't click uninstall a program, it just doesnt show the following screen. Also I can no longer open iTunes! Really weird. Any suggestions?

Isn't startup repair supposed to fix the startup problems?
I don't have any trouble booting in Windows, but only the ones I mentioned on my previous post.

Thanks anyway.
If I find anything, a way how to fix this, I'll let you know

If the system file check found un-repairable files your probably looking at a repair install unless you can isolate which files are corrupt and replace them. Have you run the scan a few times. Sometimes it takes a couple of runs especially if there is lots of corruption - Repair Install

I guess, repair install is the best way, messing with currupted dll files isn't always the easiest choice.

Thanks again
