    Option to run either of two programs connected to shortcut

    Is there a way to give myself a pop-up window when I open up a shortcut that gives me an option to run one program or the other? For example, I have two registry cleaning software's installed (PC Tools Registry Mechanic & CCleaner) and I would like to use just one shortcut to combine them some how and the ability to choose which to run.

    You sure can. See here Batch Files - Create a Menu to Execute Commands - Windows 7 Help Forums

    However do you really want a registry cleaner at all let alone two?
