    Start Menu "right" click context menu

    How do you delete items on the context menu when you right click the Start
    Menu?

    I did find some information and was able to delete a couple of them in the
    Registry.(VERY CAREFULLY)

    But I know that some are apparently not able to be deleted such as Open,
    Explore and Search. But there are two left that I can't find any info on
    deleting them.

    They are: Add to 'Windows Media Player List and Play with Windows Media
    Player.

    I would appreciate any suggestions or help.

    Thanks.
