A "fat" program in the list of "add or remove programs" win XP

A colleague at work "boasted" a strange list of installed programs (start->control panel->add or remove programs)
I'm very surprised, could not help but ask a question to experts. What could it be?
Looks like this is one heavy item in the list.

1. It starts like this: (warm up of the finger on the mouse wheel :-))



2. Continues here:



3. Then here it is:



4. Then here it is:



5. Items 2-4 are repeated four times.

6. It all ends with happiness like so:



Buttons to remove/change, as you can see there. But this "element" can be identified as other. Then he will be here in these colors:






The machine is licensed for windows XP sp3
Antivirus outpost security suite 7.1.1 free with firewall.
The phenomenon has been observed for a long time. Reboot, of course, does not help.
Otherwise Windows works as normal Windows.

Please do not have method of disposal, rather just wondering: what could it be?
Thanks in advance :-)

UPD: if you change the width of the window resize and the width of these vertical stripes and the distance between them

Solution
The alphabet looks like habrahabr.ru/ wormed in the list )
But seriously, look in the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall everything that is listed in the window
Thank you very much! With the help of your hint about the registry showed that fatty item belonged to the program "Icon Works Pro", after removal of which everything returned to normal. I wonder how that happened?
ps. if I put your answer a "solution", whether it will allow you to continue the discussion? - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:08
I think that is possible.
How did it happen? Well I would like to see the branch of the registry Icon Works Pro, if of course you have it left in became. Perhaps in it lies the clue. - aurore.Johnst commented on October 8th 19 at 01:11

Did answer your comment.
Put yourself icon works pro on a virtual machine (downloaded almost with the first link in Yandex). And what do you think? See in the list the same picture :-)

DisplayName in some special characters, most likely (invisible) - selmer_Beatty commented on October 8th 19 at 01:20
If not difficult, download the export key, see what is there for special characters such. - hailee.Rath commented on October 8th 19 at 01:23
downloaded the export key here
to my inexperienced eye nothing interesting was found. Waiting for your verdict! Very interesting! - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:26
Strange, but no hidden characters there really isn't. - hailee.Rath commented on October 8th 19 at 01:29

I have the Ubuntu graphics driver fail very similar (was about the scrolling).
Perhaps the reason is this, try to update fire wood on vidyuhi.
So when scrolling podkladyval, and the item grown fat. - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:12

Installing and uninstalling programs in XP — this is a HTA (HTML Application). Clean cache Explorer and open again. Helped me :)
It was interesting to know that this is HTML Application, thank you. But unfortunately, clean cache did not help. The uninstall Icon Works Pro is the only way. If you're interested — I'm just above in the comments posted the export key in the registry. Strange, but in my opinion there is nothing criminal... - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:14

I think the usual glitch. It's like the notorious feature, when the window the whole picture to draw from the waves and hills.
Well, this feature has an explanation. Contents hung window is not redrawn, and if it led a normal window, we get "landscapes" :-) - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:16

It apparently uses Internet Explorer to display a list with all the attendant (who is WinSpy++ from visual Studio test, I do not have).
visual Studio I have, but still I wonder what can she is there to check and how? Could you elaborate, please? - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:18

Thanks, put. Thought for Harakat not needed, because they are in the question list only displays the title.
Why in matters of Harakat? - Antoinette.Langwor commented on October 8th 19 at 01:20
