Remove entries in Programs and Features" without uninstalling programs

Is there a way to remove entries from "Programs and Features"?

The screenshot shows many entries for MegaSceneryEarth, can I get rid of all these entries someway? I do not want to uninstall the program, I just do not want all this crap showing up under "Programs and Features".
