You can use Windows PowerShell to hide a list in SharePoint 2010. Simply store an instance of an SPList Object, set the Hidden property to $true and update the SPList object.

PS > $spWeb = Get-SPWeb http://sp01/site

PS > $spList = $spWeb.GetList(“http://sp01/site/Lists/MyList“)

PS > $spList.Hidden = $true

PS > $spList.Update()
