How to uninstall windows components not shown in ADD&Remove Programs

XP hides some system software you might want to remove, such as Windows Messenger, but you can make it appear on Add&Remove Programs. Using Notepad or Edit, edit the text file /windows/inf/sysoc.inf, search for the word 'hide' and remove it. You can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, select Add/Remove Windows Components and you can remove it for good.
