Some useful "Computer" context menu tweaks

You can make your computer right click context menu look like the screenshot below. You can easily add or remove each menu item separately. Here's the link to the page that further describes this procedure and contains the link to download the .reg files you need to make the changes to the context menu.

Note: "Programs" is programs & features and "run cleanup on this system" is disk cleanup.

Thanks Harpua,

To return the favor I edited the reg files, so you will have the same on the desktop context-menu.
Desktop Shortcuts.zip - Windows Live

Here you can see how it looks.
Don't mind the Dutch translation, it will be in English on your desktop.
