How do I move context menu items into a cascading context menu?

Okay, I'm not sure if this can be done as easily as I'm hoping. What I'm wanting to do is move already existing context menu items into a cascading context menu to organize and reduce clutter. For instance, I would have a cascading menu named "Scan with" and inside it would be avast! Internet Security and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

On a side note, does anyone know how to remove the following context menu items?
Computer
- Show on Desktop
Control Panel
- Show on Desktop
Images
- Set as desktop background
- Print
- Rotate clockwise
- Rotate counterclockwise
Music/Videos
- Add to Windows Media Player List
.txt Documents

Vishal has a method. Suggest back up the registry at least before doing any editing. A Ssyste Image is always preferred.
