    Can't Remove Game Tile from Start

    Hi guys,

    I have Diablo 2 on Win 8 and I can't get rid of the tile on the Start page. I tried two things:

    1) right-click Diablo 2 tile, select Open File Location at bottom, in the Games window right-click Diablo 2 and select Hide from the popup. It doesn't do anything.

    2) Go into the registry and delete the entry under HKLM...GameUX. That works when I reset Explorer (or the computer) but it comes right back when I run Diablo 2 again.

    The weird thing is that it used to hide just fine and never come back like it does now.
