    Greetings,

    I have two add-ons that act thru the Context Menu (e.g. thru Windows Explorer).
    They are:
    *An MD5 Calculator (from bullzip.com)
    *A Name-To-Clipboard Utility (Puts filename in Clipboard)

    I'll describe the problem in terms of the MD5 Calculator.
    It works fine for ZIP files, doc files, and onandon.
    For exe files, tho, XP offers to run the executable., instead of md5 for the executable.
    (The run doesn't take place because I'm given a warning: 'Do you really ...')
    I wondered if it would calculate md5 or execute an html file: It calculates.

    I've used the calculator for years. I believe the problem is new because the usual
    fodder for an MD5-er is either a ZIP or an exe. I must have used it before for an exe.
    But my memory is not 100%, of course.

    Neither add-on is essential to me. I have other resources to do the same jobs., tho
    the context menu is handy.
    I have not contacted bullzip yet because it seems to be systemic, related to Windows
    recently and for several add-ons. Bullzip's website says 'any file'.

    Thanks,
    Harry

    It's not completely clear what you're asking.

    Are you wondering whether it's possible to delete the items from your context menus or something else?

    ---------------

    I'm asking why the MD5 Calculator does not work as advertised. Bullzip.com
    says it will work for any file.
    The point you raise intrigued me, however. You can remove the the bullzip
    md5 calculator using the removal funtion of Control Panel.
