can someone please tell me how to delete a couple of shortcuts from my start/right click context menu as opposed to my actual start menu which i know how to do :) i know it has to do with the registry and i found the entries but wasnt sure what to do with them as when i chose delete it asked did i want to delete the name but is that just the shortcut?? or the whole program?? as i want the program just not the shortcut where it is

Don't mess around with the registry unless you know exactly what you are doing.

dont think thats what i want as this says...
"ShellMenuView is a small utility that display the list of static menu items that appeared in the context menu when you right-click a file/folder on Windows Explorer, and allows you to easily disable unwanted menu items."
i want to delete them from the menu that comes up after right clicking on the Start button. but thanx anyways

The Start button is part of the Windows Explorer shell

You can do it manually - have a read of This article (http://windowsitpro.com/article/articleid/13602/how-do-i-disable-the-context-menu-for-the-start-button.html)

WARNING: Make a restore point FIRST - back up the reg, its not a place you want to go playing about in unless you know what you are doing - altering the wrong thing can cause all sorts of problems with your Computer.
