Windows 7: How to reset the context menu default look?

How to reset the context menu default look?


after I migrate from Vista x86 to Seven x86 I kinda tweaked the contextmenu with shellEx and mannually removing some keys.

I guess I might have removed somthing that I shouldn't because the context menu for a folder or a file is now very ugly (Win 98 style) compared to the default one.
Here's what I mean:



How can I fix this? Is there a way to revert back to system defaults?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Fixed, solution in my last post.

Hello fjlour,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

If the problem is recent, you could try a system restore to a point before the problem showed up. Info here if needed. System Restore

Hope this helps.

Hello there, just to update this one. The solution was removing the old version of "VSO Image Resizer" and installing the new one.

That fixed for me, generally it's an installed software that generates this behaviour.
If anyone read this in the future, here's the tip. :)
