Windows 7 SP1 Update Blocks Software Adding Context Menu
This has been happening since the release of SP1 for Windows 7. I don't know if it is exactly that update, but it is one of them that causes a blockage of software adding menus to your context menu. The software that I'm having issues with is PowerISO and Unlocker.
This is a pain in the ass because now I have to restore to before SP1 was installed and it takes forever to reinstall SP1 with updates. Please fix this.
I have installed all Microsoft Visual C++ 20XX Redistributable Packages and Microsoft Visual C++ 20XX Redistributable Package SP1 downloads.

Do you have x86 or x64 OS? Are you installing the correct version for your OS? (Sorry, have to ask). I have x64 and SP1, and the x64 version of Unlocker added the correct context menu entry for me.
It doesn't fix your problem, but for Unlocker, try Lockhunter as well. A Guy
