Windows 7: How do I remove 'Open with CFF Explorer' from right click m

How do I remove 'Open with CFF Explorer' from the right click menu?

I had installed Explorer Suite and later removed it. Even after removing it, it's right click menu item didn't go away.



Please help. It's too annoying and it gives an error on clicking it.

Thanks

Hello Susta1nz,

You might want to read this thread.
It covers the exact same problem you are describing, and the person solved it by doing the following.
Quote:
I found the location of it using fast explorer, seems to have been in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\open with cff, I deleted the entry, right clicked an .exe and BAM no more "open with CFF Explorer"
If that doesn't work, you might want to check the suggested fix in the #2 post there.

Good luck and keep us posted!

EDIT: It seems that C-11 his link offers the same solution.
If you don't know how to make changes to the registry, please check this Microsoft page.

I've tried looking at all the directories in the regedit places that everyone has listed. Nothing.. The people that tried it have said they didn't see it there but in Fast Explorer, but I don't know how to use that, or maybe I did go to the right place but couldn't find it :/ Can someone help me, maybe teamviewer please? It's just really annoying since this is my new pc and already this

You might also reinstall the program, and then delete it via either the control panel or Revo uninstaller.
