After some app uninstalling and fiddling I ended up with duplicate "open" and "explore" options in the right click context menu for all my hard drives. When I double click, there is some activity and then nothing - the C:\ doesn't open at all. I have "open" and "explore" a little lower and I can use them after right click so I get to open the disk.
Can anyone tell me where in the registry are the default actions so I can remove the nasty duplicates. I tried all the guides for editing the shell extensions but none of them covers the default "open" action.

Welcome to TSG!

The location for Drives is here:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drives
The default entries are in the Shell subkey. The extras may be in the Shellex subkey,

You may want to check these locations as well:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFileSystemObjects

Thanks for the tips.
I still can't do anything to remove the nasty "open" and "explore" on top. As a default action , I only have "find". I can't find the "open" and "explore" actions anywhere. The thing is that only the hard drives and USB stick have these options. I don't know what's wrong.

Let's get a look at all of those entries, and a coule others that may affect it.
Copy the text in the following code block into Notepad.
Save it on the desktop as Query.cmd. Be sure to change the Save as Type: box to All Files when saving.
Code:
[plain]Set _file=%userprofile%\Desktop\Query.txt
 >"%_file%" Echo.[CODE]
>>"%_file%" 2>&1 Reg Query "HKCR\*" /S
>>"%_file%" 2>&1 Reg Query "HKCR\AllFileSystemObjects" /S
>>"%_file%" 2>&1 Reg Query "HKCR\Directory" /S
>>"%_file%" 2>&1 Reg Query "HKCR\Drive" /S
>>"%_file%" 2>&1 Reg Query "HKCR\Folder" /S
>>"%_file%" Echo.
Start Notepad "%_file%"
Exit[/plain][/code]Double click the file to run it. It will create a file named Query.txt on the Desktop and open it in Notepad. Copy and paste the text into your next reply.

Looks like you've disabled some of the Context menu entries by adding a - sign in front of the value:

Normally you would edit the Key name, not the value, but I don't know if it really makes a difference. It doesn't for Sharing and Security.
I did notice that your first screen shot still shows Sharing and Security even though it appears you have it disabled.
It may depend on the context handler. I don't have Adobe CS4 to test that particular item. If you edit the value instead of the key name, the item might still appear on the list, but won't function.

For the Send to CD key you put the - sign before the key name on the context menu handler, but the one under Folder Extensions was not disabled:
Code:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\[COLOR=Red][B]-[/B][/COLOR]{fbeb8a05-beee-4442-804e-409d6c4515e9}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\FolderExtensions\{fbeb8a05-beee-4442-804e-409d6c4515e9}
You are also missing the entire HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\PropertySheetHandlers key.
I tried setting a system to match your settings but can't duplicate the problem. May be the combination of items you have.
Deleting the PropertySheetHandlers key did make the context menu very sluggish though.
I'd suggest removing all the - signs to re-enable everything, then download the Drive Association Fix from this page:
XP File Association Fixes
Instructions are at the top of the page. To extract the file from the ZIP archive, double click on the downloaded file to open it, then drag the .reg file to your desktop.

The Drive Association fix only restores the default Property sheet handlers, so if this is caused by one that is missing like for Adobe, this won't help. You'd have to re-install that software.

Only other thing I can think of is to use something like Process Monitor to monitor registry activity and see what keys are being read when you right click a Drive, see if that can point you to where that is coming from.
