Weirdly huge right click menu in 7

Whenever I right click any file I always get a stupidly huge right click menu - anyone think of a solution? Many thanks.

Or you could try this

Hope it helps

Rather than a shell entry editor I'm looking more at why the width is so large. It shouldn't be like that and wasn't when I first installed.

Do you have winrar installed? I have seen claims elsewhere that winrar was the cause.

Open winrar
click options/settings
select integration tab/uncheck- integrate winrar into shell

Thank you!!! Worked a charm. Although I didn't quite do it this way. I just unchecked the box for display icons instead of disabling it all together - I thought it was something to do with icons as winrar wasn't displaying them when it should have been. :P
