Windows 7: Computer Context menu - Manage not working


27 Aug 2009   #11

 

Uninstalling Glary may leave a "tweak" or mod enabled. It would have been prudent to use Glary to undo any Glary mods, then uninstall.

yea i did undo any changes i had made with glary before removal.

you mention Kaspersky, well it is the last thing i installed but it is supposed to be designed for Windows 7 & could try taking KAV out but looks like whatever has changed (a permission, reg entry, something intercepting) is going to say as it is until i find it.

Appreciate all the help,
JackDinn.

I believe the issue with Glary was with the regdefrag module not working properly on 7. They have resolved that now - simply by announcing it doesn't need defragging.

Well. that's one way of resolving the issue.

I use Glary and have no problems - so I don't expect it is the problem in this case.

Are you using any other registry cleaning app. - or general cleaning app. ?

You might have a look in regedit for this ( paste the CLSID it into Edit>Find)

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

If it's missing, you could try merging this:

COMP-SHELL.reg

hi Siw2,

no iv not really had Windows 7 going for so long and Glary was the only reg clean/defrag app i had installed.

iv been messing with my reg, trying to figure this out. My "computer - context menu - manage" looks like this :-

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage

can i ask if your is the same is is mine corrupt?

also i made another key called manage2, just for testing, with a subkey command which just had %systemroot%\system32\compmgmt.msc as default. It should have opened no problem but still it was blocked with a permission problem? its odd cos it runs fine if i just run the command %systemroot%\system32\compmgmt.msc

thx all.

From Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

I am not certain to what extent the following remains true in Windows 7, but here is a list of reg locations for context menu handlers.

aye i have this on NameSpace handlers picked up from here Manage the context-menu entries for files, folders, drives and Namespace objects
Quote:
Namespace objects

To remove the context-menu entries for Namespace icons (My Computer, Recycle Bin etc), check here:
  • [HKCR\Folder\Shell\]
  • [HKCR\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\]
  • [HKCR\CLSID\{Namespace-CLSID}\shell\]
  • [HKCR\CLSID\{Namespace-CLSID}\ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers\]
Example - For My Computer the key would be:
  • [HKCR\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\]
but i shall check the ones you list there although i believe i have already had a look but you may have one there that i missed.

cheers ,

p.s. could you please just hae a quick look at

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage

and let me know if its the same as mine, above , thx.

OK, I see it.

You have REG_SZ in command.

It needs to be REG_EXPAND_SZ to invoke the mmc.exe command line .

Antman was on the right track when he said something was intercepting the command.

Rt click it , select New , Expandable String Value, like this:

Computer Context menu - Manage not working-expandable-string-value.reg2009-08-27_204154.jpg

Copy the data entry, name it Default and delete the other one .

It's probably easier to merge this .reg file instead:

SHELL_MANAGE.REG

ok showing my noobness now but i cant figure out how to change the default to REG_EXPAND_SZ ? i can make a new expanded string but i cant make it default. I can see other keys with the default as REG_EXPAND_SZ but how do you do that?

sorry for being a pain chaps .

I think you need to delete the existing Default, before creating another with the same name. As it is the Default, you may need to delete the whole key command key in the left pane and recreate it with the correct values.

Just merge the .reg file in my previous post instead of any of that - it's easier.

aye tryied to delete it but you cant and when you make a new key it's REG_SZ by default.

Anyhow yep i merged your .reg file but you wont be pleased to know that it now stopped saying i dont have permission but its now back to how it was on my very first post (before i unticked/re-ticked it with Glary) I get the timer circle for half a sec and then nothing

It does the same thing if i navigate to the CompMgmtLauncher.exe file and click it, just a timer circle for half a sec then nothing.

Not good gone round in full circle, looks like Glary should be avoided as it must have put the wrong reg values back when it was re-ticked. I suppose thats one thing iv learned to avoid.

thx.
