Love this hack but be carfull what you remove after it shows up in the ADD/REMOVE program
We all want to uninstall everything Windows doesn't completely need to run optimally. Problem is, some programs you don't want taking up space hide away. They're next to impossible to find, much less remove.
Navigate to C:\WINDOWS\inf
Open the sysoc.inf file in Notepad or another plain text editor. If you can't find the inf directory, it's probably hidden. Unhide it.
Click Tools and choose Folder Options.
For example: Games=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,games.inf,HIDE,7
The deal: the "HIDE" between the two last commas indicates a hidden component. Remove "HIDE" to unhide the component.
For example: Games=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,games.inf,,7
Unhide any component you want.
Save the file.
Reopen the Windows Component Wizard to see your new Add/Remove options!
