Some days ago I installed Folder Lock in my computer. Then I uninstalled it but the item "Lock file with Folder Lock" still remains in the right-click (context) menu. How can it be removed?

there are a lot of places in the registry that hold the right click context menu.

Using an external program, such as Shell Menu View will give you the safest way to enable/disable context menu items.

If you do want to look in the registry, I would refer you to this page, to give you an idea of the work that's involved:

Nice tip. ShellMenuView really could have come in handy recently. I even already had a copy of ShellMenuView, but I never even noticed because I always use ShellExView instead. I’ll be sure to keep it in mind next time. :-) –  Synetech Jun 5 '12 at 0:23

If your'e using CCleaner try running the Registry fixer, it can remove it if the file the entry is pointing to has been removed.

If you want to uninstall all the stuff of folder lock then I'll suggest you to just install it again and download Revo Uninstaller and then uninstall through it. It will delete all registry keys and other hide folders which have been created by this software(folder lock).
