Are the missing programs still avaialble in Start > Programs?
Try restarting the computer if you have not already done so.
In Add/Remove select "Show updates if not already selected.
If the problem persists Restore to before Sygate was installed. Then reinstall it in case the first installation was corrupt.
You didn't mention what OS you are using. I too as well as some others have had problems with Sygate when applied to an XP OS. Myself and some others have had much better luck with Zome Alarm
Hope this is helpful.
Hello, I have recently installed Sygate (freeware) as my firewall and looking at my Add/Remove programs, I've noticed that many programs and microsoft updates are no longer showing. Missing are: Avast, Adaware, ALL the previously installed microsoft updates, etc. None of the programs now listed have any add/remove capabilities.
I am wondering why this would happen and how I can ensure that all programs are reinstated. I had created a new restart point before installing Sygate and know that I can restore.
Would appreciate any and all help.
