Getting back 'Empty Recycle Bin' Context Menu On Recycle Bin

Hey!

I accidentally removed my Empty Recycle Bin option from Recycle Bin context menu while playing around with context menu editing tool (Windows 7 Manager). I cannot to system restore because I installed many things, etc. which would be hassle to sort out. Could you please provide me with a new registry key file which would help me get it back? Please.

Thanks

It restores the Empty Recycle Bin option on the desktop context menu, I want it to appear on the Recycle Bin context menu...would that be possible?

Thank you so much for your help (:
