Where does the 'Sendto' menu get it's entries from?

Right click on 'Sendto' lists:Compressed (zipped) Folder
Desktop (Create Shortcut)
Mail Recipient
My Documents
Notepad
3 1/2 Floopy (A:)
CD Drive (E:)
The C:\Documents and Settings\Family\Sendto folder contains the first 5 item.
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Sendto folder contains only the first 3 items.
The C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ folder does not contain a 'Sendto' folder.

So where is the Sendto context menu finding "3 1/2 Floppy (A:)" and "CD Drive (E:)"?

That seems to be built into Windows, since my version will send to A: and F: drives; the program must search for writeable media drives, and produce these in the dropdown bar.

John is correct, the drives are by default and can not be removed without some registry edits.

Actually, that secondary context menu is slow to pop up and I wanted to troubleshoot by removing each item to see if one of them was causing the delay.

Go to the Advanced tab in your System Properties and Performance Settings>Visual Effects tab & remove the check from Fade or Slide Menus into View and see if that will solve the problem.

Not checked. I'm running pretty lean as far as the bells and whistles are concerned.

Been there, done that.

I started out with a severe delay (10 - 15 seconds) on opening of the main context menu, which got much better if I disabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP. Tracked that down to a couple of context menu related registry entries that pointed to network shares. A little registry editing took care of that problem.

The Sendto secondary menu is -probably- just fine, I don't think it really needs further troubleshooting. Just that it bothers me a bit that I can't find all the items.....

Well Derfram looks as if you are a couple of steps ahead of me.
The only other thing I can suggest, mine will start lagging a little and I can run CCleaner and it perks right back.
