Windows 7: Desktop Context Menu Problem

An Install Glitch?

Media players love to try to add themselves to the context menus.

If it was up to me, I wouldn't install Java, but I need it for Packet Tracer.

It may have just been that something didn't install properly the 1st time.

I hate it when you can't discover the reason behind something failing.

Oh well, c'est la vie.

I had this exact problem just the other day, I found the cause to be Google chrome and every time i closed Google Chrome after visiting any face-book app. this error with the context menu started happening. So I just removed Google chrome by uninstalling it and everything seems to be running fine. havent encountered the context menu issue yet.
