Easy tool to edit context menu?

Hey there,

is there any easy to use tool to edit context menu entries? E.g. I'm not able to get rid of all the "buy music online" and WMP-Entries myself. I tried deleting the particular registryentries ...

I know shellexview but this is kind a weird since I don't want to +mess up everything

Thanks so far!

Hello Welcome to SF,

You could try Glary Utilities it has Context Menu Manager

Hope this helps,

@Capt.Jack Sparrow: Thanks, gonna try it :)
@ Kari: But I don't see the context entries of WMP there

Edit: @Capt: Okay thanks, that worked for the WMP-entries. But sometimes it doesn't work as I would like it to work: Sometimes there's only one entrie, which refers to a certain dll-file, which than inserts two or more entries (e.g. winrar: You just see one shell-entrie for winrar in the registry, but winrar shows up several entries. You have to configure winrar to change this behaviour...)
