Windows 7: New context menu

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
New context menu

hey everybody,

would like some advice on how to remove "briefcase" and "Compressed (zipped) Folder" from the New context menu. I've been tweaking it by going to specific entries in the registry, but don't know where to locate ShellNew for briefcase and zip folder. I've come across some downloadable automated ways of getting rid of them, but I won't do that, I want to do it manually myself.
Any advice would be much appreciated, thank you.

Hello Envy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The tutorial below can help show you how to. If you do not want to use the REG files, then you can still download them, right click on the REG file and click on Edit to see what changes to manually make in the registry.
