    Thank you for the reply.

    That's the funny thing. The key is not there. In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT only found in CLSID\.. and in Wow6432Node\..

    You'll need to scroll down past all that under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT to see "AllFilesystemObjects".

    We're at a misunderstanding. What I mean is the key is not in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

    Only in the other two locations.

    If you mean the {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} key, then what other two locations is it located for you?

    Did you use this tutorial to add it to your context menu, or from another site that may have used a different method?

    I shouldn't have mentioned it :) Unnecessary complication. Keys are in :

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\Wow6432node\CLSID\C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13

    Yes, I Googled for this tutorial and used several .reg files from what I think are reliable websites like Howtogeek, Askvg, Superuser.

    No worries. Those keys are located there by default in Windows, and are what the context menu references to run "Copy To Folder" and "Move To Folder".

    Those wouldn't be responsible for the context menu.

    You'll need to edit the .reg file you used from whichever site to add the context menu to see the registry key it added for the context menu to be able to remove it.

    Thanks. In the meantime I found out what's wrong. It's obviously a complete misunderstanding of what these reg files do.

    What I did is use your reg file in step 2 that brought back two registry keys. And the result showed that's not at all what I'm after :S What I'm after is the removal of the entry above these two which is also named 'copy to' and is a cascading menu that shows dekstop, documents, email contact, compressed folder and several partitions.

    Sorry..

    Nothing to be sorry about. I'm glad you got it sorted. :)

    Yeah, halfway there. Do you understand what I want and could you point me to how to get rid of this particular entry?

    To be able to delete the key below, you would need to first take ownership of it, then set permissions to "Allow" the "Administrators" group "Full control". Afterwards, you should be able to delete it.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13

    Step 3 in Option 4 of the tutorial below can help show you how to do this.
