Have you ever wanted to be sneaky and hide a program that’s installed on your computer from Programs and Features and the Apps & features list? Well search no more, I have all the answers you seek. It’s shockingly simple.
Proper programs will list their uninstall info directly in the registry all we have to do is tweak that slightly.
If the program is 64 bit it will show up in the registry in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and it will have a key for it’s program sometimes listed by its program ID or the actual program. You may need to search for the application you want to hide.
If the program is 32 bit it will show up in the registry in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall just like 64 bit it will have a key for the program.
The process is the exact same for 32 bit or 64 bit programs.
