Windows 7: Games Explorer can't hide some of my games!

Games Explorer can't hide some of my games!

Hi there! Ever since I've been installing some older titles like San Andreas and Vice City the games explorer can't hide them form the list. I right click and I select hide, but the game won't hide itself! I tried rebooting, logging off, using an admin account, but no the games just stay there...
One thing I know, the games in Games Explorer are stored in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX" so is there any String/DWORD in the respective game folders to hide the game?? I'm open for other ideas too.

you can try the Games Explorer Folder - Hide or Unhide Games tutorial or the related tutorials found at the bottom of that post should have answers to most games explorer issues

Yes, but that's only for the Built-In Microsoft games.... I'm talking about the ones that appear and are detected automatically....
