I think that entries 2 and 3 inly are created for an InstallScript MSI (aka "Standard") project, not for Basic MSI.
In a Basic MSI project you can set the ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT property to hide your application from the Add/Remove Programs control panel (on Win 2000 or above), but I don't think you can prevent the other entries under key 1.
