Does anyone know of a way to remove unwanted context menu items, like ones that remain on the menu even after the programs been removed. I thought I once read that you can remove them from the registry?...

There are different entries concerning right click menus on Drives, Directories and Folders.

Goto

HKCR\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

HKCR\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

HKCR\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

HKCR\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

and delte the unwanted values.

BACK UP FIRST!!!

HKCR = HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

hope this is what you want.
