How can I hide installed programs from being seen in control panel on windows?

The easiest way of doing this is using some programs like :Hide Program

But the download link of this program doesn't valid anymore.

And I also know this can be done by modifying registry. But if want them to be seen again, this is really lots of work to do.

What's your ideas?

If it still doesn't feet you, here you'll find a working link for the Hide Program software.
