Clear Undo Delete/Move/Rename/Copy actions from context menu

Hello,
I would like to know if there is any way to clear past actions of Delete/Move/Rename/Copy from the context menu in desktop without REBOOTING.

I already tried Clear Clipboard Shortcut - Create in Windows option and Hot Copy Paste - Enhances Windows Clipboard software. But both of them wasn't clear recent activities.
Any solutions?
Thanks in advance before.

I have 3 Win7 computers at hand and each shows a slightly different context menu, one had Undo Copy, another had Undo Delete and the third had neither. It may be an association to what was last done in Windows Explorer.

Yea it's showing recent changes. But those things will automatically grayed out when I do a restart. I'm looking for some option to clean those activities without restarting.

Unfortunately I do not know of any other way to do this. Logging off or restarting seems to be the only way.

Perhaps killing explorer.exe might do the trick with task manager.

That does seem to be the only option.

I've always found it hard to deal with Dynamic entries on context menu, not as easy to remove as Static entries are.

Maybe I'm quite late but anyway..

This is what I do: Delete any file/folder/anything, then empty the recycle bin and voila, there is no Undo in the context menu anymore. I keep an empty text file on the desktop for this and I just copy, paste, delete it and empty the bin, takes like 5 seconds. Mind that it doesn't work if you permanently delete it with the shortcut SHIFT+Delete key
