One detail that would help is; where do you usually see this menu, the Desktop, Folders, Files, shortcuts?

What else is on it, can you post a snip of one?

You might have to rebuild them: New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items

Have you seen the other tutorials on context menus?
Scroll down a bit to where "context menus" start and see if any of them will help, the list goes into the next page: Windows 7 Tutorial Index | C

There is also the possibility of removing some of your list if you have CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download It might handle some of that.

Just be careful with it, you don't want to go pruning too much! This may help as a guide: CCleaner Tutorial « How-To Geek Forums
