Windows 7: How to remove context menu entries (somewhere in registry I think?)

How to remove context menu entries (somewhere in registry I think?)

I installed a program called Folder Size which I am mostly happy with:

Folder Size - Freeware. Check the directory sizes and folder sizes on your computer with this freeware tree size analysis tool.

However, it added an entry to my right click context menu everywhere which is bothering me. I can find no option in the software to remove it. Usually with these things there is a setting somewhere in the registry that will help me get rid of it, and usually for more popular software (like my ATI drivers for example) I can find that exact registry location through a google search. However, nothing is coming up here... not many people use this software I guess.

Any ideas how to track down the offending registry entry? Thanks!
