I don't think there is away of removing it, i have checked many forums and the Registries and even look back at my 680 & 685 MCITP books, but no where does it mention how to remove.

I think were just going to have to live with it....

You'll have to dig into the Registry. Launch REGEDIT and navigate to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt. Each subkey of this key represents one menu item. Many will include an ampersand (&) to define the underlined key associated with the command.
To get rid of a command, you can delete the corresponding key, but that's permanent. Instead, highlight the key you want to delete (for example, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Zoom &In). Choose Export from the Registry menu and export that branch to a file. Now delete the key. Open the exported REG file in Notepad. Find the string MenuExt near the end of the long third line and change it to MenuExt-. Save the file and double-click to launch it. Your no-longer-used menu item's Registry data will be saved in the Registry under the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt-. If you want to bring the key back some day, you can reverse the procedure described.


If i have helped please add reputation.

Ok ive been looking at this really hard now and I may have found a different solution which should work for you... it involves downloadind a piece of software called "ToolbarCop" It is a browser extension manager that lets you remove the entries of the right click menu easily, just select the items enlisted and disable them HOWEVER because this is a WIN7 default Im unsure if you will be able to remove it like this, worth a try i guess?
