Delete the folder of the program that you want to hide in Add/Rem. Programs list, from this registry place. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall
Important Note:Backup the registry values. To do, right click the application folder and select "export" for further operations. Otherwise you won't be able to uninstall that program.

and finding out if your drive has an 8 MB buffer or not...

right click 'My Computer' --> 'Manage' ---> 'Device Manager'

look for your hard drive in the list to the right. do a search on the internet for the model number that is provided. you'll be able to find the specs with this information.

Or just pop the case open and look at the label on the drive...

Anyway, regardless of removing the program from the Add/Remove dialog...WHY would you want to do that?

The x-teq program has the ability to remove items from the add/remove list without actually uninstalling them.
