          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.
