  • This problem can occur if the program you installed creates a registry key name that is longer than 60 characters in length. Add/Remove Programs only lists program names it locates up to the point it encounters this situation.

    Follow these Simple steps given to solve the problem.

    Firstly Find C:\Windows\Inf folder. Then scroll down to sysoc.inf. Open it withnotepad.

    It will look like..
    [Components]
    NtComponents=ntoc.dll,NtOcSetupProc,,4
    msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7

    Now This Is The List Of all Program which are Hide in Add/Remove

    Only Delete the word HIDE from the Program Which You want to list in Add/remove . Don’t delete the “,”(comma) after it.

    Save the file and restart your machine and now you can see that app listed in the Add/remove programs list.
