    Revo uninstaller may do it. First you would have to run SFC /scannow to try and repair any issues. If you are daring, you can go into the Registry under Local Machine and Local User and try to find the key that goes for that program and the shortcut. has never failed me on fixing issues. Use the first link, not the other two that are listed at Freeware to fix or remove Broken Shortcuts in Windows

    If you want to add or remove entries from the context menu you get when you right click on an object, let Google help you:
    Add or remove entries from right click menu

    Another excellent site is Ramesh's site

    It has complete instructions for managing the context-menu entries for files, folders, drives and Namespace objects.

    You can also use PC Mags Context Menu Editor

Despite what everyone says, I disagree that a desktop enviroment can't be made "touch friendly" All it needs is: 1) a "long-press" to replace "right-click" 2) a "Graphical button grid" to replace the "text menu" (think Android 4.0)
