    Hi. Although I uninstalled Eraser from my Vista SP1 box, Eraser's context menu items still appear in my Recycle bin's context menu:

    Where in the registry do I delete these options?

    Thanks.

    Try using the registry cleaner in CCleaner or Advanced Windows Care Personal (both free). There is a myriad of other apps that also have registry cleaning systems that should be able to detect a context menu pointed at a nonexistent exe.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the advice. Tried CCleaner but didn't quite do the fix so Googled "recycle bin context menu fix" and came upon Recycle Bin Context Menu Fix.

    This was an immediate fix but found a bunch of references to Erasext in my registry. Eraser uninstaller left such a mess that even REVO apparently couldn't handle it all even with a deep scan.
