i have installed many programs, some adds some buttons to my right click, i find my right click takes more time to load and it's to long. is there anyway to cut off some of the buttons in my right click menu?

1/run a spyware program if you have so much junk - this may get rid of a few for you (i use adaware from www.lavasoft.com)
2/ uninstall items in add/remove programs.
3/ prevent other startup item from loading by running "msconfig" click "start\run" and type "msconfig in the box then click Ok.
in the "startup" tab uncheck items that you dont want to load.
If you need more help let me know.

thanks for the reply, dont know if i have made myself unclear or what, i'm actually talking about my right click menu, not the startup menu. also i dont really get thsi sentence, "in the "startup" tab uncheck items that you dont want to load." waht do you mean? thanks for the help anyway.

Just as much my fault - i "assumed" you wanted to remove the program not just the items from the context menu (technical name for the right click menu).
Use the program Cetin has suggested in the other post - there are very few program like that around - but be careful and make notes of what you delete - particularly systems type items as I have found altering these can have ramifications in other places which are sometimes hard to correlate as being the cause.

Hi,

You should first search through the options of the programs you installed, sometimes the programs let you decide whether you want buttons added to your right click or not. If there are no options to disable the buttons, then you should think about uninstalling the specific program which gives you buttons that you don't need and cannot deactivate.

Download ShellExView v1.01 (Freeware).

It'll display the details of shell extensions installed on your computer, and allows you to easily disable them.


Good Luck,
