I have Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6 on my computer. When I right-click on an icon on my desktop, I get a menu. How can I eliminate some of the items on that menu? Thank you. Murrar

See Here: Customize Context Menus

Be advised that some of the suggested fixes require editing the registry. If you will be using a fix that requires a registry edit or edits? Before doing so it is strongly advised you back up your registry. If you are unfamiliar with doing that please see: Demystifying the Windows Registry
Paying particular attention to section 4 which addresses 'Backing Up The Registry'.

Hope this helps.
