Sometimes applications plug into the context menu that I get on right-click on files and folders in Windows Explorer. After some time this menu gets really messy and I just want to clean it up.
Can you tell me how I can do this?

You have to edit your registry, it's easiest do do this for the context menu of directories:
Each filetype (file extension) has its own additional commands which you can find under
If you want to remove a specific menu entry, it might be easier to just search for the context menu string in the registry.
You can use ShellExView to disable context menu addons.
