    You could try using Autoruns (free from ms) and look at the context menu sections. That tool highlights items where the related program has been removed- it might be that the empty space corresponds to something incompletely removed, so that could give you a way to identify such entries.

    You can experiment by disabling any particular entry (checkbox) and noting any change in the context menu.

    (Don't disable MS items)

    Thank you. I ran autoruns but I cannot see "Context Menu" in the various tabs. I chose the Explorer tab but nothing is highlighted there and nothing concerning context menus is highlighted in the "Everything" tab.

    I experimented as you suggested and it seems the problem is solved now. Thanks a lot for your advice
