Windows 7: Is there a way to edit the context menu without additional software?

Is there a way to edit the context menu without additional software?

Windws 7 Pro SP1 with IE v8.

I recently had to install Windows Live and 3 new entries were added to the context menu in Internet Explorer.

1) Blog with Windows Live
2) Email with Windows Live
3) Translate with Bing

I want them gone. I've looked through the usual registry keys like:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt

And cannot find any traces. In fact, I searched through the entire registry for the values "Blog with" or "Email with" and nothing turned up.

Just where in the heck is this buried in the registry? If I disable Windows Live addon in Internet Expolorer, I think that my games (Gears of War and Batman Arkham Asylum) will no longer work. I could be wrong about that certainly. Does anyone know how to get rid of these?

I don't use IE anymore. But some software is written as a BHO or Browser Helper Object. You can try WinPatrol as it has a separate category to show all BHOs. You can delete them right from WinPatrol.

WinPatrol has both free and paid versions. But the BHO stuff is included in the free.

edit: In WinPatrol the menu is IE Helpers.
Apparently what it does is let you remove the registry entry for the helper without deleting the file itself.

Should be simple to disable/remove, try this:

Open IE8 > Tools > Manage Add-ons > Accelerators > Right click on all entries and click Disable/Remove
