Remove Search from Context Menu

I image-restored my computer to the first time Windows 7 was installed. Attached are two screenshots of the context menu, 1) from "My Computer", and 2) as shown from Drive C. Thank you much!

Well, there's no "Search" in the context menu anymore.

Remove search from context menu

Well, there has never been a "search" from "My Computer". Even now. "Search" continues to exist on the context menu for Drive C and everywhere else, even though I uninstalled Windows Search. Was I looking for apples on this discussion thread, and got oranges?

LOL, yep. This tutorial only adds/remove "Search" from the Computer context menu. It wouldn't have anything to do with the other locations.

This below may be what you are after to remove it instead.
