Windows 7: WinRAR Menu Items Are Gone

WinRAR Menu Items Are Gone

After upgrading to Windows 7, the items in the right-click drop down menus for WinRAR are gone (extract, compress, etc).

How can I get them back without a re-install? I lost my WinRAR PRO License Key and Install Disk. :?

EDIT: Nevermind, just had to go back into WinRAR Settings and re-enable shell integration.
