If you are uninstalling SignagePlayer from a Win8 PC and you need to remove SignagePlayer.bat to end the CMD window on boot, you have to look somewhere else for the startup folder:

C:\Users\<User Profile folder name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Yes its a pain.
I've stopped counting the number of times I've had to do that.

It would be easily solved if the uninstaller cleaned up after it self.
