This question already has an answer here:

After installing Tortoisehg workbench whenever I right click on an icon or the desktop on the menu it has options for Hg Workbench and Tortoisehg. I don't want that, how do I get rid of it? By the way, what is that feature called? I thought it's referred to as shell integration but after I googled the phrase it only came up with the calculus shell integration.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

just a note....some applications allow you to add/remove shell ext items in their options/prefs. Winrar has this feature, not sure if those displayed have the same options – Logman Feb 28 '13 at 1:21

Yes, it's often called "shell integration", and is done by shell extensions ("shell" referring to Explorer, the graphical shell of Windows).

One program that lets you disable individual shell extensions is Nirsoft ShExView.

If he has CCleaner, there are options in that program to do the same thing. – Justin Pearce Feb 28 '13 at 1:18
