    Remove rogue right click entry leftover from uninstalled program

    If I right click on an MP3 file, there is a entry from a program I uninstalled. How do I get rid of it.

    Thanks

    See if the free Context Menu editor helps.

    If the above does not work, see if an app such as CCleaner can find the leftovers and clear them out.

    Context Menu Editor only had 1 entry that did not look right. Ccleaners' Registry cleaner looked like it might have found the right entry, but it did not work along with another registry cleaner. I have also tried Shellexview without seeing the entry.

    I was thinking maybe if I reinstalled it and used something to track the install, it could point me to where the problem lies. Can anyone recommend such a program, free if possible.

    Revo Uninstaller. Use the advanced uninstall. Revo does a great job finding leftover stuff that app uninstallers leave behind.

    I had considered Revo as it was already on my system. I decided to try it anyway and reinstalled the app. Revo did find a bunch of entries with that string. I deleted them all and rebooted only to find that the menu item was still there. Tried again and then did a registry search and found a bunch more entries and deleted them all. Now it appears to be gone.
