    Now, think of an application that has exhibited this behavior. Is it in
    the Dock at this moment? Did you always open it from the Dock or do you
    ever find it on a drive and open it from there?

    Not really a good idea though. You’re removing some core applications from the OS. QuickTime, Finder, Safari, Preview, and a few others are core applications. If you remove a handful of core applications, the system files might be locked up and prevent a successful startup.

    That’s why I gave the disclaimer, I didn’t want people messing things up on accident.
