To remove a destination from the Send To menu, do the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type sendto, and then click OK.

3. Right-click the shortcut that you want to remove, and then click Delete. The shortcut is removed.

Hello

Yes you can open the regestry and go to

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\OpenWithList]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]

In here you can find referances to those programs, delete them. Before doing any thing to the Regestry you should back it up. Right click what you what to backup and press export. save it some where, where you can find it should you need it.

Hope this helps.
