Okay, so I fond a solution to my problem. As previously mentioned, I used Task Scheduler to make a task to start MP as Administrator at startup, and made a shortcut to start this on demand. But now I also figured out that running MPTray.exe as Administrator will make MP run as administrator as well, so I similarly made Task Scheduler start MPTray as Admin. This gives me the desired results: "Safely Remove Drive" works properly whether MP starts automatically or I start it with the remote, I did not have to disable UAC and I don't get any UAC prompts. Problem solved, I suppose, but it just seems a bit convoluted. Does anyone know an easier way to make the Remove Drive feature work without disabling UAC or getting a UAC prompt? Maybe some Windows trick I am not aware of, or possibly changing the way the plugin works? And on another topic, is there any plan to support this plugin in the DefaultWide Skin?
