Windows 7: How to edit right click "new" context menu?

How to edit right click "new" context menu?

Hi all, first post.

I have a rather cluttered "new" context menu. Ie. when right clicking on my desktop I can choose "new" and choose "text document", "word document" etc.

Problem is that the menu includes lots of stuff I don't want to. In XP I could easily edit these items with MS TweakUI, but I haven't figured out how to do it in W7.

Can anyone help? I took a screenshot illustrating what I mean.

Thanks
Martin

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately the software you link to can't help me with the issue I described above.

Thanks. It's just some registry entry surely. Just haven't been able to locate it yet.
