thanks! It does help. I was wondering though, if there
was a way of doing it within stata8 (in my case i am
using windows xp)

You don't tell me what operating environment you are
using. However, most 
operating environments allow the user to list all
files with the .dlg 
extension, which Stata uses for dialog box files. For
instance, in Windows 
98, I might get into Windows Explorer, find the file
c:\stata8\ado, and use 
the menu sequence

Tools->Find->Files and folders

to list all files *.dlg in all subfolders of
c:\stata8\ado, where the 
dialog box files are kept (along with the ado-files).

This will find the official Stata dialog box files. If
you think you may 
have installed unofficial Stata commands with dialog
boxes, then carry out 
the same search in your personal Stata ado-files
folder, which, in Windows, 
is usually called c:\ado or something similar.

I hope this helps.
