Hello Andy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can use a free program called ShellExView to help remove or disable that "Context menu" type.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

No problem.

When you run it, look under the Type column for Context Menu items. Next, look at the Extension Name and Description for this Context Menu item to see if that may be the one. You can then right click on the context menu item and disable it for now to make sure that it is it before deleting it.

To add to Shawn's suggestion - Nir's apps are great, but you will probably find this easier to use -it's free , too:

Glary Utilities

You may want to click where it says other builds and get the non toolbar version.

Make sure you give it Admin privileges - rt click the .exe , select Properties> Tick Run As Admin, OK , Apply.


BTW - if you want to use one of Nir's apps. - that will be a static item so

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shell_menu_view.html is the one to try.
