Add/Remove pregrams problem

hey i'm currently operating a Dell dimension 3000 with windows XP. In my control panel in Add/Remove programs new programs i have added do not appear and the programs that do appear are listed as being used infrequently(an example is msn messenger 7.5 which i use everyday shows that the last time i used it was june last year) what may have caused this problem and do you guys have a fix? thanx in advance

No fix.

If you research this you find it chalked up as a Windows Annoyance.

Microsoft is famous for classifying such as a cosmetic bug (meaning no fix.)
