I added a few programs to the right click(shell) of My Computer, by modifyin this key:

Can I do the same for MyDocuments? If so I'd like to add entries to open My Pictures and a few other folders in the My Documents folder. But I don't know if this is possible, or what key to modify. If you do...pls let me know.

I dunno - but the context menu is sensitive to the "context" in which you use it (what you get depends on what you right click on).

I'd suggest backing up your registry and finding out how to restore it if you can't boot into Windows (a hard, but not impossible task). Once that's done, you can hose the registry to your heart's content - and still be able to resume using Windows (as long as the backup is fairly current).

Then just experiment with the different keys until you find a solution.

Standard Caution Applies:
Make a manual SR point before proceeding, and do your back ups.
