Windows 7: How do I Remove "Shop for music online" context menu ?

Windows 7 baby ! : D
 
 
How do I Remove "Shop for music online" context menu ?

Just as the image shows, how would I go about removing the "Shop For Music Online" context menu ?

I find it rather annoying, as much as WMP has improved over the years, it would be nice If MS wouldn't put unnecessary crap within the menus.

Anyone know of anywhere in the Registry where this little bugger might be hiding ?

Thanks


Jordan

That's not from Windows. You have a toolbar or something you've installed that's triggering that. Check what you've installed that pertains to music and I think you'll find your culprit.

Mine has it as well, but only if i r/click a complete folder inside the MyMusic folder.

it takes you to shopformusic.microsoft.com

Not sure how to remove it though

For future reference, a handy way to control those entries is with the Context menu module on Glaryutilities Free:
