Make Hidden Programs Appear in Add/Remove
This tip will help you remove annoying programs such as MSN Messenger that do not normally show up in the Add/Remove programs list. In order to do this, you need to open Windows Explorer and do the following:
1.) Navigate to C:\Windows\Inf
2.) Make a copy of Sysoc.inf for backup
3.) Open the original Sysoc.inf file and it will open in Notepad
4.) Press Ctrl-H and replace the string ",hide" with ",," and save the file.
After doing this you should be able to see all of the hidden programs in Add/Remove (located in the Control Panel).
