I'll just copy and paste the same reply I submitted to you in the last thread you started regarding the same issue, but to which you never responded...

Assuming you're running either XP or W2K, and without knowing where exactly in the right click menu you're referring... Start | Run | Type regedit, and click OK | Expand the following branches...

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | * | OpenWithList
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | * | shellex | ContextMenuHandlers

... this is where some items are located.

You can also go to a specific file extension (for example... HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | .txt | ShellNew) | Right click on the ShellNew key, and select Delete (if the item shows up in the "New" context menu). Other locations in the registry for you to check...

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | Directory | shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | Directory | shellex | ContextMenuHandlers
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | Drive | shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | Drive | shellex | ContextMenuHandlers
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | Folder | shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT | Folder | shellex | ContextMenuHandlers

I saw the word "shell", and since you're posting in the MS section, the Windows command line comes to mind. redduc900 probably answered your question, but just in case you wanted just to access the command line itself...

in Windows XP:

Click Start > click Run... > type "cmd" > click OK

just covering all the bases.
