Hi sokatra,

Thank you for your information,

But most of our users have the authority of local administrator

unless the VMWare's users

Or is there anyway to hide it in the repair or remove programs in control panel?

if you have admin rights - you have admin rights.. and you can do anything

users should not have admin rights.. There is a way do prevent uninstallations even for admins (like antivirus software do) but this is very complex to program.

So i really recommend that you disable adminrights for every normal user.

kind regards
