The Remove-PSSnapin cmdlet removes a Windows PowerShell snap-in from the current session. You can use it to remove snap-ins that you have added to Windows PowerShell, but
you cannot use it to remove the snap-ins that are installed with Windows PowerShell.

After a snap-in is removed from the current session, it is still loaded, but the cmdlets and providers in the snap-in are no longer available in the session.
