    When I right click a file within the desktop or just Windows Explorer in general I have a few things in the context menu that I have uninstalled but stay in the menu. I've already cleaned the registry with RegCleaner and RegSeeker but the items still remain in my context menu. How do I get rid of these things?

    Ok- I spoke to soon. I still have two programs that are not installed on my system anymore but are still showing up in my context menu. One is JetStart and the other is Xplorer2. I deleted a few things with the Context Menu Editor program that was suggested but these particular entries didn't show up in the list of things that I could delete. Any other suggestions?

    OK-I tried you're suggestion but some of the entries in the registry were far from identifiable. I did, however, solve my problem. I opened RegCleaner again and there was a Shell Extensions tab in the program where I could go through the list and find these entries fairly easily. I guess I missed this before. Thank you for the help. Here's a link to RegCleaner just in case someone else has this problem. The program isn't free anymore but I found a link to the last free version. http://www.aplusfreeware.com/categories/LFWV/RegCleaner.html
