When you create a account it asks if you want to make it private. Say yes and only you will be able to use the software installed.

That is not saying that other cant see the software they just cant execute it.

Some applications already do this via the installer but not all have this option.

Well for complete privacy then yes you must use a account that was created and has all the files kept separate.

As far as hiding them i don't think there is a way to do that. I will have to see if i can find something for that.
