What's this shell menu item?

Hello, I got silently added to all shell context menus these items which belong to unknown to me software. How do I find the sw and remove it from my shell menus (I don't want anything but Winrar in my shell menus):

Well I don't recognize the icon but it's definitely a compression utility like winrar or 7zip.

Not positive but I think it's winmount...

That may be true, I have Winmount installed as portable application.
Run it now and the WInmount UI icon doesnot match the shell menu.
I have checked the Winmount preferences and found all shell integration turned off (as on picture):

Then is there a chance to uninstall the menu items manually, or uninstall the Winmount completely (if it's Winmount items)? But then I don't know how to uninstall it as it is portable application without an assigned uninstaller.

It's indeed WinMount...the entry saying "Compress to ehshell.mou" is a clue.

You could search for the "Compress to" string in your registry - if you find it in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT inside a key named 'shell' below one of the file extension keys, it should be safe to delete that key - not the 'shell' key itself but the one inside it for WinMount (but better export it first so you can restore it if something goes wrong).

Another way to get rid of this might be to actually run WinMount, enable all shell integration options, click OK, exit it, restart WinMount, and then once again disable all the options.
