Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Same here. A few months back noticed that some programs I've once installed, don't show up in Windows' Control Panel "list of programs". Seems like they are from some specific time, since there are older and newer programs that show up just fine. Newly installed programs add up also well.

Windows uninstaller registry is also missing these certain programs.

My first, and only so far, guess is that on my case this has something to do with the certain buggy Win7 update that came last fall.

Windows 7 Pro x64

I had this same issue and failed to find a solution on the web. I ended up getting it resolved at superuser.
Here is the thread:
Most programs not visible in Programs and Features in windows 7 - Super User

And here is the article that resolved the issue:
How Add/Remove Programs Works - Spiceworks

In my case, viruses/malware, were most likely the culprit.

Control Panel not showing sizes 0f installed programs
I do not know whether it should be like that or not but I find that Control panel >Programs and Features do not list all sizes for my installed apps. For example Office 2007 and many others have no size listed. Is that normal?
