    Angry The screen resolution is too low for Browser Choice to run....

    Got Windows 8 installed on a Samsung N102 notebook with a max screen res of 1024x600. Clearly someone decided to hard code the screen size requirements for the Browser Choice app as I keep getting the above error message.

    Does anyone know how to remove this pesky nag app without it having run first?

    And this - REGEDIT - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then SYSTEM, then ControlSet001, then Control, Then Class, then {4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} (this value could vary on different computers) and then 0001 then double-click on Display1_DownScalingSupported (you can also click on Edit and then Find and type in Display1_DownScalingSupported) Change the Value Data from 0 to 1 then hit OK. Close the Registry Editor and restart the computer.

    this will allow you to run metro apps in without the resolution error.

    Thank you both for your replies, HKLM\Software\BrowserChoice - Enable=0 does exactly what I needed.
