    Maybe tell us which entries are unnecessary? Some of these are standard features installed by archivers like WinZip and KGB. You should be able to disable these in the settings of the corresponding program. Others are common tweaks. Why did you apply them if you do not want them?

    i did not apply them and i have kgb uninstalled and still i have the corresponding entry.

    I don't want (at least ) :-
    1. kbgb entry.
    2. command prompt
    3. save folder listing to file

    If you didn't apply them, then who did? They most certainly do not come with Windows..

    You should find the menu entries in the system registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    Hopefully the subkeys have meaningful names so you can recognise the unwanted ones and delete them.
