In this post I will show How To Hide Hide an Installed Program/Software In Windows ( It might not work on Win XP as I have only tested in Windows 7 )

So lets start but before trying this trick i will tell you peeps to create a restore point for your sake,

Step 1)

First of all Locate the directory of the installed Program that you want to hide, For Example you want to hide MediaInfo Lite Software then go to " C:\ " Drive of your Hard Drive >> " Program Files " >> Folder " MediaInfo Lite "

Note the address of it by copying it from address bar.It will look like,

C:\Program Files\MediaInfo Lite (32 Bit Windows)

C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaInfo Lite (64 Bit Windows)


Step 2)

Now open Notepad & paste the address of the installed Program Folder in it,just add " \MediaInfo.exe " it will look like

"C:\Program Files\MediaInfo Lite\MediaInfo.exe"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaInfo Lite\MediaInfo.exe"

Save the notepad file with anyname you want, say M.cmd. Make sure you save it as "YM.cmd" and also as all types. You can use Capital OR Small Letters, it will not matter.


Now you have saved the cmd file named "YM.cmd". Move this file to your "system32" folder of Windows Directory. i.e.

" C:\Windows\System32 "

! Make sure you remember the name of the cmd file !

Step 3)

Now Delete all the shortcuts of the installed Program from Desktop (If exists) and Start Menu. Make sure there is no way/shortcut to open the Program!

Step 4)

From here the main trick starts....


Open Command Prompt as an Administrator from : -

Start Menu >> Programs >> Accessories >> Command Prompt


By any other shortcut you know, bt make sure you run it as an Administrator.


Change the directory in command prompt to the folder where the software is installed i.e. " C:\Program

Files (x86)\MediaInfo Lite
" by using below command without qoutes,

" cd C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaInfo Lite "

Now Enter this command in cmd (Command Prompt),

attrib /s /d /l +s +h +r "Name of Program.exe"

For Example: -

attrib /s /d /l +s +h +r "MediaInfo.exe"

Wait for the commaand to work.When it completes open your installed Program Directory, you will notice it has



One more step i will advice you to hide the folder of the software also.

You can do it by opend CMD again change the directory, this time : -

" cd C:\Program Files (x86) "

Now Again Enter the same command in cmd but with : -

attrib /s /d /l +s +h +r "MediaInfo Lite

Doing this will hide the FOLDER TOO....

Here is the detail of the command, what it does is that it makes the folder a " Protected Operating "

System File" by changing its attributes.
Untill all this process you can still access the Program Folder by simply checking the option of showing Protected Operating System File in the Folder Views Options.

Step 5)

To remove the program from "ADD/Remove Programs" in Control Panel.

This can be done simply By using a Program named "CCleaner".

Remember this trick is not applicable for "msi"

Programs such as "Java Update"

You can Download CCleaner by searching it on Google.

After Downloading & Installing CCleaner Open it, Go To Tools & go to Uninstall then find your desired program
click on it & then delete its entry by clicking on the option "Delete Entry" in the right side of CCleaner.
When a POP Up appears asking to delete Click Yes.
From this Trick We have deleted The Program to show up "ADD/Remove Programs" in Control Panel.


You may check it if it worked OR Not.
( !! Will Work !! )

Step 6)

Now if you wants to open the Deleted ( Just Hidden ) Program you hust have to type the name of the cmd file i.e. M in

Command Prompt and press enter. The Program will appear UP !!.


But there are two little

If the Program also has a way to open via system tray then we have to now hide the system tray.
This can be crossed by a simple Rgistry Hack.What you have to do is to make a .reg file by using the below code: -

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Copy it & paste in notepad , save as file typeas "ALL" name as whatever you want For
Example "NO TRAY.reg" make sure .reg is also typed.After saving the above file open it & merge in

Registry by double clicking on it.Log Off/Restart to see the action.

The hidden folder of Program can be accessed by checking the option of viewing PROTECTDED OS FILES in FOLDER VIEWS


This too can be crossed by a simple Edition in Security option of the Program Folder.
(Just Like We Do In Registration of IDM )


Just click go to properties of the Program Folder then Security then Edit then Click on Users in the Gropu OR Username

Option. Here you can see permissions for users such as Modify . Check all the Boxes in the Deny Tab. From this no one will be

able access folder & the Program.

If whenever you want to access the Program change the Security Permissionds of the Folder & access it.
So Simple !

!! So if you becomes quite handy with this trick, using this you can HIDE ANY FILE,MOVIE,VIDEO OR ALMOST ANYTHING !!


For those who are using 64 Bit Windows Replace "Program Files" with "Program Files (x86)" if the desaired Program exists in "Program Files (x86)" folder ,otherwise follow same process.


(Only attrib command is taken n rest of the trick like deleting entry via CCleaner, using this for hiding things other than software and thing like that are enhanced by myself...)
