    Is there a way to hide applications or anything for the matter in ML?

    In Snow Leopard I used to run AppleScript Editor and use:
    do shell script "chflags hidden /Applications/System\\ Preferences.app" user name "USERNAME" password "PASSWORD" with administrator privileges

    or at least run this in terminal:
    sudo chflags hidden /Applications/System\ Preferences.app

    But now neither one will work, the above worked for some things but most it didn't. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    Actually it still works...for whatever reason I need to restart in ML for it to take effect.
