RE: How to hide the McAfee Agent 4.0 product in "Add/Remove Programs" list

The Add/Remove Programs list is populated from the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Uninstall

Under the Uninstall key, there will be several sub-keys, each representing a software program that you installed. The following example shows how to hide the AnalogX Proxy entry from Add/Remove Programs listing:
Method 1

* Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
* Navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Uninstall \ AnalogX Proxy

* In the right-pane, right-click the DisplayName value and choose Rename
* Rename it to anything (For example, NoDisplayName )

The AnalogX Proxy entry is now hidden. To make it visible again, rename the value back to DisplayName
Method 2

* Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
* Navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Uninstall \ AnalogX Proxy

* In the right-pane, create a new REG_DWORD value named SystemComponent
* Double-click SystemComponent and set its data to 1

The AnalogX Proxy entry is now hidden. To make it visible again, delete the SystemComponent value that you created earlier.
