Incorrect spelling, explanation:
programms is probably a mistake made by mixing up two different spellings: American programs and British programmes. The American programs (singular program) is a form simplified from the British in Webster’s dictionary in the 19th century. Therefore programms is incorrect, and the correct form is programs (or programmes).
