Hide programs in programs and features

There are several programs in the section programs and features in Control Panel, I want to hide the view, or uninstall.  These are mainly supplied with the computer, Microsoft programs for example Microsoft Visual C++ (10 list programs) and Microsoft Sync Framework (4 programs).

So the question is, can I uninstall these programs, or can I hide their view, with the possibility of viewing them at some time in the future?

Hello

Thanks for posting in the Microsoft Community.

Microsoft Visual C++ is a commercial integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for the C, C++, and C + c++ / CLI programming languages.

All units of Microsoft Visual C++ are must run programs installed on the computer. Various programs are designed to work with various Visual c++.

NET is a programming framework created by Microsoft that developers can use to create applications more easily. "a framework is just a bunch of code that the programmer can call without having to explicitly write."

Microsoft Does not recommend to uninstall or hide Microsoft Visual C++ or. NetFrame work.

   

Hope this information helps. Response to help you further. We are happy to help you.

  • Can't access "Programs and features" Control Panel

    When I click on programs and features in control panel nothing happens. Other icons work

    Check your hard drive for errors:

    Click Start

    Type: CMD, according to the results, right-click CMD

    Click on "Run as Administrator"

    At the command prompt, type: chkdsk /f /r

    When you restart your system, your computer will be scanned for errors and will try to correct them.

    then

    Click Start
    Type: CMD, according to the results, right-click CMD
    Click on "Run as Administrator"
    At the command prompt, type: sfc/scannow

    This will check for any breach of integrity

    Restart your system

    Also, try the following:

    Press Windows key + R

    Type: appwiz.cpl

    Press enter

    See if it opens

    Also, try to create another user account and see if it opens.

    Its possible you may have malware on your computer that prevents you from opening.

    Can you do a restore of the system before you start, facing this problem?

    Download ESET Removal tool

    Burn it to a CD or create a USB bootable thumb with her:

    http://www.eset.com/us/download/utilities/

    ESET are Live is a live Linux distribution which can scan malware and clean infected files. It runs from a CD/DVD or a USB device, regardless of the host operating system, but has a direct access to the system disks and files. This will eliminate the threats which, under normal conditions, can be impossible to remove.

    Download and create your ESET are Live drive

    You can also try to do a system restore before you start experiencing this problem:

    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/HT/system-restore-Windows-7.htm

    There are some that will hide your files/folders so that you don't normally see them. I strongly suggest to run a scan on your computer with your antivirus/antimalware software. If you need to, you can also use the Microsoft Safety Scanner, it's free:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Also, if your files are hidden, check out the following article on how to display the:

  • All my programs that once displayed in programs and features are no longer the

    Also, I wonder why all my programs that, once appear on programs and features and now no longer?

    Seems that the x 86 programs disappeared.

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and boot into Safe Mode. Note that some viruses can hide from your normal antivirus program, so you really need to scan in Safe Mode. To enter in Safe Mode when you turn on first, press F8 on every seconds until you get the menu, and then select Safe Mode. Then run a complete system scan.

    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem. To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore. Click on the box that says show more restore points.

    -

    You can check the corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type CMD in the search box, right-click on CMD. EXE and click run as administrator. Then, from the command prompt type sfc/scannow.

    -

    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log. To do that click on start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools. Once in Event Viewer system log-click and scroll entries looking for these "error" with indicator see if you can find guidance on where the problem may be.

    `

    When you get your system in good working condition, I invite you to back up your system up to an external hard drive and make it regular periodic updates.

  • Pavilion dv2 Notebook: how to uninstall items in "All programs" which are not displayed via programs and features

    I do not play games on my computer. I uninstalled 'My HP Games' (32 items) via the control panel. However, there are 11 items that appear in the games through "All programs", but are not displayed by the intermediary of "Control Panel / programs and features. There is also a link to eBay.com, in "All programs" that I would like to delete.

    How to uninstall these components?

    Hi @jarhtmd,

    Thank you for your response.

    The sample you provided it seems there are some games that you should be able to uninstall in Add Remove programs.

    For example, 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Chess'. When you look in the programs listed do you see "Microsoft Games\Chess, if so you should be able to uninstall."  It would be listed under Microsoft Games / and the name of the game.

    As some of the Microsoft games that came with the Windows installation you can not have an option to uninstall them.

    Those ending with "lnk" is just links. Try right click and delete.

    Good luck!

  • uninstalled a game but still shows up in programs and features

He says that there is a file that is 4 KB, which makes my computer think it is always installed, but I don't know what the file is to delete for me to reinstall the game itself. Any advice on how to fix this? I have Windows Vista 64 bit

  • Uninstalled program is still listed under "programs and features".

    Original title: a program is listed in programs and features. It was uninstalled and deleted directories. Yet, it still shows in the list programs and features. How can I remove it?

    I had installed this program before. I thought I had uninstalled. I tried to re-install this program, but cannot. I checked the list of programs, and it is still in the list, after being uninstalled. How do I remove it from the list?

    Hi n4ctf,

    Take a look at this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314481

    Edit the registry to remove an entry. This link refers to Windows XP but I checked with Windows 7 and it works so it should work with Vista.

    Once you have access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall you will see a list of numbers. You will need to go through each of these numbered editions to find the program you want to remove. Click on a number in the left column, for example {08D605B4-DCD1-451F-ABD7-52E6BB868E4E} and you will see then the details is in the right column of the registry editor. See the 'full name' so check to see what the numbers program refers to.

    Normally, I would recommend that you try to reinstall the application rather that tinkering with the registry, but as you have already tried unsuccessfully to re - install, change the registry could be the last option. By the way, before making any changes in the registry, make sure that you back up the registry first. This link of my website will show you how to back up the registry:http://vistasupport.mvps.org/backup_the_registry.htm

    All the built-in programs that are part of the Vista operating system will NOT be displayed in programs and features. To simplify the reason, Windows Media Player 11 is part of the operating system and cannot be uninstalled. So there is not need to be listed in programs and features, whose main goal is to uninstall or repair any installed programs. Another example is Windows Defender.

    For your information:

    In Windows 7, Windows Media Player 12 is also part of the operating system and it cannot be uninstalled and it will not reveal in programs and features either.
