Windows 7: PowerDVD Right Click

PowerDVD Right Click

I recently uninstalled my CybeLink PowerDVD 13 software and the right click context menu is not going away. My friend who is a developer and PC genius couldn't even figure it out. He went into the registry and CCleaner and still couldn't figure it out. I want to know if you Seven Forum geniuses know how to fix this.

It does this for pictures too, which doesn't make any sense.

Colin have you tried a sfc and chkdsk (only not the chkdsk if you have an SSD)

try these mate in this order if you have tried some of it then I am sorry but am just stating a process of elimination.

download from bleeping computer

delete any rubbish you find.

If these do nothing then you may have to reinstall that software

One other thing is I and many others do not like AVG but the choice is yours of course but personally I would be dumping it.

Plenty of choice here if this is what you would rather do.

Try ShellMenuView and remove any Cyberlink related context menu items

ShellMenuView - Disable/enable context menu items of Explorer

If problem persists, use ShellExView to see if a Cyberlink context handler is causing this behavior

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

Lastly, if still no help, uninstall CybeLink PowerDVD 13 using the free Revo Uninstaller, and see if the problem goes away. If so, you can always try a reinstall as this seems like an aberration.

Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware

Yep should have thought about that a bit more Bear probably the last is the best suggestion.

I reinstalled and then removed it with Revo Uninstaller "ADVANCED" mode. The problem is STILL here, there were no entries on the ShellView. I am completely lost here.

Have a look through the manual methods suggested here. Your friend may have missed some of the choices.

Manage the context-menu entries for files, folders, drives and Namespace objects

I just installed that to see if I could track down the reg keys for you but after an uninstall (through programs and features) the context menu entries are gone for me.

Did you click NO when asked if you wanted to keep the settings?

Here is another recent thread with the same problem,

Context Menu -> Remove item (uninstalled program)

Also unresolved so far...

I did click NO, and there is nothing in RegEdit with the name CyberLink. I did a complete search, and I also did an ADVANCED uninstall :/

Some of those things with CMD you posted earlier make me nervous, I don't want to f**k up my computer.

There is nothing under these:



I can't find a thing, I will perform a DSKCHK and will report back when it's done.

Another option you could use is Ccleaner. It can remove unused file extensions left over after an uninstall. It does offer an option to back up the registry.

Piriform - Download CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva, Speccy - Millions of users worldwide!
