How can I hide software title during a gpo package installation?

I am deploying a web monitoring agent via a gpo package installation and I do not want the users to see the package title in the windows applying settings window when they are logging into their machines. Is there a way to mask the title short of renaming the MSI to something generic?

Other than renaming, deploy it by logon script, with switch /qn . You'll also want to have it hidden from add/remove programs.

On the other hand, maybe it's not such a bad idea to let them know. Sometimes it helps to even pretend that they are being watched. Fake cameras etc. When I drive to work, I often see police cruiser sitting near the highway, and everybody will slow down well before they will notice that it's empty.

Install the package overnight? Use a Wake-in-lan if there are to many computers.. or call it something else as vadimrapp1 suggested (patch for Very Important Program).
