Send To Context Menu - Remove or Restore Default Items

Did that previously ...to no avail. The same files exist in the Default user sendto folder.

Do you have those shortcuts in your account's SendTo folder at the location above?

Yes, in both the user-name and default sendto folders and in both accounts. Four locations altogether.

There is only one other account, which is the Administrator account. It, also, has the same problem.

Sorry, but I'm confused. You posted above that you only had those two files in you SendTo folder, but then later say all the shortcuts are in the folder.

Could you please clarify, and post a screenshot showing what you mean?

Sorry, I glossed over the word "shortcuts" that you asked about. I do not have any shortcuts in either of the sendto folders. The items in both of the sendto folders are the original "Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink" files as downloaded from the link you provided. I've uploaded an image.

OK: just finished following the instructions in that tutorial, for a third time, and still the problem remains. I also tried copying the "DESKLINK File (.DeskLink)" from another working Win 7 OS computer and that doesn't work either.

Odd. Go ahead and post a screenshot showing it to see if anything may stand out.
