Hello

I have uninstalled the software associated with programs connected to the recycle bin access via Right Click.
But he program icons are still connected to the reycle bin.

Could anyone advise me on how to get rid of these programs after the software has been uninstalled?...

Thanks

Get ShellExView: http://www.nirsoft.n...s/shexview.html
When you open it, click once on Type column, so all Context Menu (right click) items are listed together, and look for an entry from that uninstalled program.
You can disable it, using ShelExView.
