Uninstall buttons missing from Add and Remove window in Windows XP Home.

I got my aunts computer running fast. See it took forever to boot or do anything.

Well the problem I came across is in the add and remove window where all the programs are listed. The uninstall button is missing. I tried to do a restore to several points but it won't do it. I even tried to do the restore in Safe Mode and still won't do it. No I did uninstall Zonealarm. But it took 2 try's. I took it out because it was hogging everything up.

Here is just a sample of what I see. Not the exact from this computer.

I went into regedit to look and did not take anything out! But the uninstall folder is missing.

And heres a sample of regedit.

Can someone help??
