    Thanks.. I'll give that a try.

    There is a Product CODE and a Product KEY - Need the Key. Yah, I suspect you have to buy the Full Version of Aida to get the key out, I bought it a long time ago.

    See the problem with my Toolbox, is I can't let you use some of my hammers! Because they are paid hammers.

    Windows 8.1


    Sorry for replying to an old thread, this happens to be the 1st result in a Google search for removing "Picks" from the Windows 8 store. Just wanted to stop by and share how to remove it (I figured it out after a little searching and quick look through the registry):

    1.) Open Regedit (Type "regedit" at the Start Screen, it will find it quickly)
    2.) Navigate to: HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Store
    3.) In the Store folder will be a key called something like "store modifier" that will have a value for the OEM
    4.) Export that key to back it up, just in case it breaks anything from removing it (File menu > Export)
    5.) Delete that store modifier key so all that is left is the standard (Default) key
    6.) Reboot and check the store, no more OEM picks

    Tested and working on an Asus X200CA that had an Asus Picks in the store.
