Description

When remove-item generates an error, there is no way to handle the error in Powershell without the error resulting in a system error that generates red error text on the console, EXCEPT if I add the -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue switch on to it, in which case it behaves like VB's On Error Resume Next, with no indication of failure whatsoever.
