comment How do I remove an EFI System partition from a drive in Windows 7?
Since the question was on removing a single partition, it should be noted that the "clean" command removes all partition information from the disk, effectively rendering it a blank disk.

comment TightVNC server not listening for connections
Reason for this can also be that something else is using vnc server port (default 5900). It usually is another instance of vnc server. As a temporary measure, you can set the port to 5901 in the vnc server preferences. Then you'll have to type hostname:1 (or hostanem::5901) into your client.

Needless to say (well, depends on who you're speaking to) you need to reboot after this fix.

comment Prevent Windows Explorer from trying to extract metadata
I wish I could give you more points for this answer than just one. At least I can accept it as the best one, since it fixed the problem for me! I had mopped the whole internet with google, only to find people with similar problems and useless answers and fixes from Microsoft that didn't work. Thanks a whole bunch!

comment Prevent Windows Explorer from trying to extract metadata
I found a way to open the file in SoundForge and get the .sfk contents too. File > Open, but don't browse to the actual folder. Instead type in the full (or relative) path to the file, including the filename. In that case windows leaves it alone. And btw, SoundForge doesn't have any problems with the file, even though Microsoft says in the hotfix that this only happens if the .wav file is corrupt.

comment Prevent Windows Explorer from trying to extract metadata
I can access it from command prompt yes and rename it. That's what I did and would have solved the problem BUT ... there is an associated .sfk file to go with it that SoundForge reads. What i tried today was to rename the file as .raw, open it as raw in SoundForge and that worked fine - except I didn't get the extra data (regions that i have created) into the file, since that comes from the .sfk file.
