Remove Catalyst Menu Item from Windows' Context Menus

I'm used to click the View menu by right-clicking anywhere and clicking straight away to open it. Since ATI's Catalyst Control Center added itself to that menu, it had to go.

This is how you remove that annoying menu item:
  • Open the Registry Editor.
  • Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers.
  • Backup (export) that key in case you mess things up.
  • Remove ACE from that registry item.
The ContextMenuHandlers item should only contain the NEW key. The Catalyst item -should- be removed when you delete the ACE key.
