Can you give an example of what you need to remove from the context menu.
Note   Note
Removing items from the context menu will normally involve changes to the registry. Any further advice will need to be folowed by the letter to avoid irreperable system damage

There are in fact several context menus, for different scenarios in Windows. For example, righ-click on a Picture will have different options than right-clicking a system drive. What are you right-clicking when the above options appear?

If you could post a screenshot that would be extremely helpful
