    First, make a backup copy of sysoc.inf (c:\windows\inf\sysoc.inf) in case something gets fouled up.


    Open the Sysoc.inf file.


    Do a global search and replace for ",hide" replacing it with just a comma.

    A sample old line looked like this: AccessUtil=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,accessor.inf,HIDE,7

    The same line now looks like this: AccessUtil=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,accessor.inf,,7

    Note that there are two commas after inf and before 7

    Save the Sysoc.inf file, then close it, and reboot your computer.

    You will now see a number of additional components in the ADD/REMOVE module which can safely be removed.
