    I think you will need to read the file into PowerShell and check line by line
    for the file you want to remove - the rest of the file can be written back to
    a file

    ie (remove the third line of u:\testfile.txt) :

    $f=${u:\testfile.txt}
    $f[2]=$null
    ${u:\testfile.txt}=$f

    If you want to remove lines matching some specific text (e.g. "bouh"), you
    can write this:

    (type myfile.txt) -notmatch "bouh" | out-file mycleanfile.txt

    "bouh" can be any regular expression so you really have great control over
    your filter here.

    Hope that helps,
    Jacques
