Did you put this SDelete in your system32 folder?

Quote:
A) Download SDelete, save it to your Desktop, open the downloaded SDelete.zip file, extract (drag and drop) the sdelete.exe to your desktop.
B) Right click on the extracted sdelete.exe file, click on Properties, General tab, and on the Unblock button.
NOTE: If you do not have a Unblock button under the General tab, then the shortcut is already unblocked and you can continue on to step 1C.
C) Copy and paste the unblocked sdelete.exe file into the C:\Windows\System32 folder, then click on Continue and Yes to approve copying it there.

I use 64bit windows 7. I want to make another delete menu in the context menu(right click menu). Its function should be exactly the same as preexsiting delete, but its name is 'xdelete'. So one can press X (instead of D) to delete files or folders. I found a helpful document:...
