    Hi Guys,

    I got a link for an antivirus program listed on my right click list. I have uninstalled the program, but the link is still there. How can manually remove it?

    Thanks in advance.

    If it's the "Send To" menu you are talking about, then there's a folder under Documents and Settings-> (your user name)-> SendTo. The folder is hidden, but in that folder you can add or remove things from that list.

    Search for it in the registry.

    First places to look
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    On a similiar note...

    Is there a way to completely remove "send to" from the right click menu? I have never, even once, used send to

    Open your registry and find or create this key:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To

    Create a new String value, or modify the existing value, called "(Default)" and set it according to the value data below.
    Disabled = empty
    Enabled = "{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"

    Since you want to disable Send To, you will want to make the string blank for that registry key. That should do it for ya! :)

    It is not in the "Sendto" list.

    It is a "Scan with PandaAntivirus" link directly on the right-click list.

    Yoyo,
    Thanks a alot, I found them all. I did a reg search and found a few more as well.
    Thanks a million.
