Windows 7: How to remove "ReDeskIconPos" from Desktop context menu please?

How to remove "ReDeskIconPos" from Desktop context menu please?

Once again I'm asking for your kind techy help folks.

I have been trying to find a small program to restore the desktop icons to their positions after I have changed the screen resolution. Eventually I found Desktop Restore which does the job perfectly.
But, before that I had a failed attempt with another program whose name I can't recall (sorry ) which I uninstalled but am left with ReDeskIconPos in the right-click desktop context menu.

There are many fine tutorials on how to add or remove specific items but I do not know how to 'translate' them into helping with my issue.

Could some kind person guide me please?

Hi MadMudMob, There are 2 more places you can look in the registry, but I would not touch anything if you

do find that entry without backing up the registry first.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT Directory,Background,Shell

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT Directory,Background,Shellex, Context Menu Handlers

YES! Thankyou, ethel - I found it thanks to your first suggestion.
What do I do now to get rid of it please? Delete it? Delete Command and then it or something else?

I did try to bring a screenshot here but Photobucket blocked me and said I need to pay $399.99 to be able to embed my photos on another site.
