    Context Menu -> Remove item (uninstalled program)


    Greetings.
    I had some time ago installed Cyberlinks PowerDVD, but not anymore. I have uninstalled it, clearet reg.database, temp-files aso, but I still get the choise to "Play with Cyberlink PowerDVD 13" when rightclick on a .jpg, .avi, .mpg and more.

    How do I edit the context menu for media-files, so I don't have the PowerDVD option there anymore?

    TIA

    Hello Burgurne,

    The free program ShellMenuView may help make removing this context menu item easier.

    Hope this helps, :)

    Sorry, but no. ShellMenuView does not show anything related to PowerDVD or Cyberlink. It seems to show only the _default_ chosen programs for a specific filetype like .jpg.

    If you look at the picture in post 0, you will see the problem in line 4 "Play with Cyberlink PowerDVD 13". If I go to "Open with ..." there is no PowerDVD there, only at line 4 of the first menu.

    Go ahead and export your .jpg and .jpegfile registry keys under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, and upload them here. I'll be happy to take a look at it to see what entry may be for this PowerDVD, and post back a .reg file or way to remove them. :)

    OK, here are .jpg and .jpeg from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

    Thanks for your time :)

    Not in those. I also need to see the jpegfile key that's listed down past the top list of file types. It'll most likely be in it. :)

    Nope, nothing in it either.

    As a test, download and merge the .reg file for each affected file extension with this in the tutorial below, restart the PC, then see if it's still there.

    I have tried this now, but only for .jpg filetype as a test. This did not help. The "Play with "Cyberlink PowerDVD 13" is still there when I rightclick a .jpg-file.

    Or do I have to do it with every single filetype for this to work? I don't know all media filetypes, that can be played with PowerDVD.

    This is my last post for tonight. It is 4:40 am here, and I'm getting tired
    But I will read your answer tomorrow :)
