Addition to CCleaner cleanup apps

Recommended Posts

Context menus can grow very long, trash your computer with lots of junk registry files.

The following lists the common shell menu locations for all files & folders:

___________________________________________________________________________

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFileSystemObjects\ShellEx

__________________________________________________________________________

 

Items specific to folders:

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

_________________________________________________________________________

 

It could be listed under tools just like uninstall & startup are.

Perhaps listed as:

- Context Menu

 

The option to disable or delete (Just like startup handler) would be awesome!

 

+ me up, or digg me down, lol. What do you all think?

+ It could be a good powerful addition for those that know what we're doing, and how to undo it.

- It could be potentially destructive for casual users that aren't into changing their systems internals.

= Dead even. :lol:

 

Albeit Nirsoft has two small freeware tools that accomplish dealing with undesirable/unneeded shell items, so why reinvent the wheel?:

* ShellExView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html

* ShellMenuView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shell_menu_view.html
