@Karan Unfortunately it didn't; all the code there uses the same calls and has the same problem with those last few pesky ones...

comment PowerShell to remove built-in Windows 8 apps?
@Ariane There are 1.5GB worth of them on my SSD... that's a clean install, although I did run some of them a couple of times out of curiosity.

comment How to fully uninstall a Windows Store app?
Alright, Remove-AppxPackage has removed two thirds of the remaining apps; for the rest it fails with "Windows cannot remove <app> because the current user does not have that package installed". Is there absolutely no way to remove them? One of these is Bing Travel, and this is a clean install with just a single user.

Nice! This worked for 25% of the directories in there, but for 75% of them it says "The system cannot find the file specified". Any ideas about these?

comment “Safely Remove Hardware” icon in Windows 8
It did help! For me this was caused by a memory card reader plugged into the ExpressCard slot. Unplugging it, or disabling the "USB Mass Storage" device corresponding to it, made the tray icon disappear. Would have been much nicer if the icon only appeared when there was a memory card inserted and mounted!

There's no such option for me, unfortunately.

comment Remove new tab with most visited websites in Firefox
"browser.newtab.url" = "about:blank" also helps Firefox feel faster, at least on underpowered machines.

comment How do I allow programs that generate “high” or “severe” alerts in MS Security Essentials?
Not an answer to the question, but I found that if you quarantine it and then restore straight away, the file becomes unblocked. Having said that, this seems to suggest MSE is no better in terms of UI than all the other products...

This doesn't work if MSE has already detected a "threat". It might work on new items, not sure yet.
