Windows 7: I Am Looking To Add MS Office 2007 Programs To My Context Menu?

I Am Looking To Add MS Office 2007 Programs To My Context Menu?

Hello. I have a question...

Is there a way to add a link to open Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 to my context menu on Windows 7 64-bit operating system? I am also looking to add Microsoft Word 2007, and Microsoft Outlook 2007 to that right-click drop down menu too. I would assume, I may be wrong, but would these be conducted or setup the same way like OneNote is? I use these applications a lot and it would make things a little quicker and easier.

I am looking to have it incorporated into the context menu using/running a script with a simple clean code (please no hex code) that I can run to make the quick accurate changes. I am also looking to add a small icon next for each Office program that is the actual program representation in the context menu as well. Please do not provide me the manual method steps to perform this function to the registry. Please provide a completed REG file attached to your response or a Windows System Registry script I can therefore make my own REG file from. I am not interested in a third party program either that would perform this action as well.

I cannot believe this would be too difficult to do. I am guessing 6 lines of code maybe (2 for each of the 3 MS Office programs?)?!? I maybe wrong??

Please reply.

Thank you!

Every single anti-virus program I've tried (AVG, Symantic, and Avira) seems to break Microsoft Office. After I install the program, when I try to run any office program at all, the program will open and just hang and come up "Not Responding." I know I probably should have virus protection, but...
