This will let you Remove Windows Components programs

  1. Open Notepad
  2. Open up SYSOC.INF file (c:\windows\inf)
  3. Delete the HIDE towards the end of the line. Do not delete the commas.  Don’t put any spaces in-between the commas.
  4. Save the changes
  5. Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
  6. Click on Add/Remove Windows Components. You will now see options for Accessories and Utilities and several other components.
  7. Remove the check next to the component to remove it or check it to install it from your XP CD.
  8. Please be careful what components you remove though!
