Add or Remove create "New" PowerPoint, Word, and Excell documents

For the most part this thread has helped immensley. However I have installed MS Office 2007, and now I have options to create new PowerPoint, Word and Excell documents. How would I go about removing and restoring these?

W7 Pro SP1 64bit

Microsoft's TweakUI (for XP) renames the ShellNew key:

It works on W7 too - but some patches or updates will change them back

If you play with this - and you rename it back to normal - then you might have to select the desktop and press F5 to refresh the context menu... or just restart the computer. If you ever do a repair of Office, they might come back too. One way to halt this is to make the keys read-only.

My guess is that there are several apps to pick from that will do this for you - I've just never gone hunting. I do it manually and I make them read-only. [Can you say "control freak"? :-]
