    remove some right click options

    I installed a new version on Acdsee.. and now when I right click on a folder
    both version are still in the right click drop down.. I would like to get
    rid of the old one, and while I'm at it there are other options I would like
    to remove too.. for example winamp has 3 lines

    Hi,
    Context menu items can be removed by ediing the registry, see
    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/context_folders.htm Mistakes in registry editing
    can be hazardous to your system.

    ShellExView - free Shell Extension Manager For Windows:
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html is a safe, easy wat to clean up
    the context menu.

    Hope this helps,

    Re: remove some right click options

    I downloaded the shell program and Acdsee was not to be found on the list.
    Basically I want to remove this menu when right clicking on a folder. Winamp
    has 3 in the menu, but also not on the list.. I was able to remove them from
    within Winamp... but so far within Acdsee I can't remove the menu option

    Sorry, I lost track of this thread.

    It seems like ShellExView would have found it, but if the previous version
    of ACDSee was uninstalled, you might search the registry for the exact
    string (text) in the ACDSee context menu item. If found, backup the registry
    and delete the entry.

    If you decide to search for and remove the entry manually, be sure to backup
    the registry.
