Open the registry..
navigate to HKclasses_Root\Installer\Products

highlight any key under the Products. On the Right Pane u should see a Value "ProductName" which has a REG_SZ type data ..

Double cick the value to change it to anything u want..

E.g
I renamed the "safari" browser to "Safari-renamed"

Now Add/remove lists this tool as Safari Renamed
