    what porn program ya got on there?

    hehe, download a program called TweakUI, and it'll let you remove items from the Add/Remove Programs list, without actually uninstalling it.

    I was curious how TweakUI was able to hide programs from add remove so I did some searching. Turns out the add/remove programs gets its list from the registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

    And if you look there is a key for each installed program, and a UninstallString telling it how to uninstall.
