Well, what exactly is Carbonite?

OK, now I know what it is..

let me look over your screen shot again.

What type of file are you right-clicking on to bring up those different menus?

Okay, I'm in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers, where I assume the Carbonite value should be, but I can't find it, even though Carbonite, 7Zip, and VLC all still show up on the context menus for my folders. The only two values in there are "Briefcase Menu" and "Library Location."

No, the context handlers in there are just "{596AB062-B4D2-4215-9F74-E9109B0A8153}" (which appears to be empty), "CopyAsPathMenu" and "SendTo."

What exactly are you trying to do?

Remove Carbonite from appearing on the context menus for my desktop folders. See the picture in the first post.

That's what I tried first.

Okay, I found the fix. It's in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers for the folders, and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers for individual documents.
I think we can call this solved.
