i don't have the same driver as you, my ageing laptop has intel945 graphics, but the following may work for you too...
run regedit, find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\Shellex\ContextMenuHandlers then delete the igfxcui key. (you may want to export it first, so you can reinstate later if needed.)
run msconfig >> startup >> untick all the intel common user interface boxes.
reboot, and your annoyances will be gone!
this worked for me on my 945 graphics - hope it helps for you. and i hope it doesn't break anything else down the line...
