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.

not yet, haven't dug into it yet. I'm still about 4 hours into a defrag of my audio drive.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
