I'm using Norton System Works with Recycle Bin and I like to keep the context menu clean. I just installed Spybot S&D and against my wishes it installed a quick launch scan in this context menu.

Now the menu reads:

Unerase Wizard
Open
Explore
Scan using Spybot-Search&Destroy
Empty Norton Protected Files
Empty Recycle Bin
Create Shortcut
Properties

How can I remove it?

A recommendation from a reliable source I trust:

Go to the following website and scroll down to the section "Context Menus (Right Click) - Deleting entries" and follow the instructions.

This will involve editing the registry...so take the usual precautions when doing so.

Can't this be done safely by using HiJackThis? (Without registry editing)

I've heard good things about Menu Maid, but I haven't tried it.
