Any program which you install adds items to the Start Menu and the Add/Remove Programs List in the Control Panel. Using this Control Panel applet, anyone who has access to your computer can view which programs you have installed on your PC and uninstall them. Hide Programs lets you hide programs from the Add/Remove Programs List or re-show them. You can also temporarily hide Start Menu items without deleting them. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
