I've tried lots of download managers in my day .... most of them are crap and were quickly uninstalled. However in my right click menu I still have 4 options of download mangers to use. I know there is a way to get rid of those options .. I just can't remember how. Anyone?

If you're refering to right-click menu items within IE, look for the following key in regedit. Each key under that refers to a certain right-click menu item. Just delete the ones you don't need.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt

Hope that's what you were looking for.

For things in menus other than IE as well as other annoying ads or whatever I just search the registry for that text. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Be careful though. Look at what key your deleting of course.

Ok, is there a key to remove stuff from the send to menu too?

Sure.

"Send To" items are located in the \Documents and Settings\%username%\SendTo folder. A shortcut to get to it: Start>Run>sendto
Delete any shortcuts you don't want in your Send To menu from the folder.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
