I have uninstalled KMPlayer but 2 context menu items (Play with KMP, Enqueue in KMP) are still visible when I right-click on any folder. How can I remove these remainders?

OS: Win7 x64

Note: I've uninstalled KMP on different machines several times, and I think this is a bug in KMP.

You can use ShellExView to remove them.

I've tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of ShellExView, but it couldn't find any items related to KMP. There must be some way to delete these remainders using Registry Editor... –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Nov 9 '09 at 22:11
    
Have you also tried ShellMenuView? –  CGA Nov 12 '09 at 11:06
    
I couldn't check it with ShellMenuView because I've deleted the registry items of KMP before you proposed ShellMenuView. But it seems useful. Thanks anyway... –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Nov 20 '09 at 12:02

I have used RegAlyzer to find the items containing "KMPlayer" keys, values, and data in the registry. It found 708 entries! I deleted all of them and now the context menu remainders are gone together with the other KMP filth. I don't know how much this solution is reliable, but it worked. If any, I can accept better alternative solutions.

And the lesson I learnt: KMP is a good player unless you uninstall it! It spoils your registry thanks to its superb (!) uninstaller.

ShellMenuView can solve the problem.

There's no way to remove those menu entries for associated files. There should be an option in Preferences or in the setup wizard.

You can remove the items manually with the registry editor in Windows, or by using the attached registry patch.

Source and registry patch.
