Continuing story: removing annoying context menus

I wrote about my annoyance with companies/products that add items to the right-click context menu in Windows before: see post 1 and post 2. Unfortunately, the situation is not improving, as with the latest version of Adobe Acrobat, additional .dll’s are being used. So here’s an updated list:

  • To remove the Combine supported files in Acrobat context menu item:
    regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenu.dll"
    regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenu64.dll"
    regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenuShim64.dll"
