So I finally solved it to some point. The programs hinted a good direction, but it did not really solve all the issue. In the end I found all the content menus in the Registry. You can change/remove the shells yourself manually. It works for all files (which are listed under *) and for folders and directories. But for since there are literally 1000 file extensions in my registry, you can not fix it manually. Automated programs also cant fix it, because there are just so many file extensions.
So the fix in the end is very easy. Go to each program which puts stuff in context menu, go to options or properties, and there should be an option to disable context menu shells. If the program does not have such option, it is not a trustworthy company, so just uninstall the program.
This way you solve most of it. BUT, some programs are so rude, that they leave your context menu items even after uninstalling. E.g you right click an mp3 file and it say "Open with Winamp", but uninstalled Winamp already. The entry simply stayed in the registry!!! So you need to use some of the Registry cleaning soft-wares to clean up your context menu. Just to give you an idea Winamp did leave more than 200 entries in my registry!!!
