Restore Default Right Click Menu?

A while back, I used a tweaking system to change the options that would appear if I right-clicked a file. I tried restoring the setting using the exact tweaking program, but it didn't work. I want the old menu back, since the one I have no looks so...nasty. Here's what I mean.

Good Right-Click Menu:

Bad Right-Click Menu:

Hello Cam,

If it's been to far back to do a System Restore using a restore point dated before you did the tweak, then a repair install may help instead.

Hope this helps,

It could be also that when you installed a program, it automatically switched the right click menu to the old one. jZip does that when you right click on a file or folder.
