Removing HP Picks From Windows Store

I've recently purchased an HP Envy 4 Ultrabook which is running Windows 8, is there any way that I can remove the HP Picks category from the Windows Store?

No, you cannot. That section is defaulted to be in there.

You can actually remove this but it involves a bit of fiddling with the registry.  

 

Open Regedit and find - 

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Store

 

then right click the StoreContentModifier key, select Modify then delete whatever is in the value box (mine was HP2_Volume).

 

Restart and it should be gone.

Does anyone know how to delete this value? It will simply say unable to delete it. I shut down Store and Store broker proccesses but nothing changed. tThanks for any help.
