I ran the MS powertoys to add a contextual menu "command prompt here" for easy command prompt access in Win7.

How can I get rid off it now ? There is a string to unistall it : c:\windows\rundll.exe setupx.dll,...

but this does not work on win7: do you lnow a way to remove that extra right click menu ?

Open Registry Editor as an Administrator. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell. Look for an extra key, maybe DosHere. Delete the extra key.

You should back up the registry beforehand, in case you accidentally delete the wrong key.

    This is correct, but it's [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd\command] – paradroid Jul 12 '11 at 20:52
