How do I add programs to right click menu?

  tye 16:55 09 Jun 2008

When I right click on a file I'm able to scan it with
AVG and a2, but I also have Adaware, Spybot S&D and other malware detection items on my computer. How can I add these to the right click menu? Thanks -

Try the free Fast Explorer click here.

If the above doesn't work (or doesn't work as expected), there's a manual method that involves editing the registry - see click here & look under 'For folder icons'. G

NOTE: Make sure to backup your registry before making any changes, & learn how to restore it if anything goes wrong or your PC won't boot.

I have not used this, nor even looked at it, but it is a software tool to edit the right-click menus. click here

I've been fighting with FileMenu for a while, & tho
interesting, it won't let me put a number of progs.
on all context menus. Seems slightly buggy. Many nice features tho. I haven't yet tried Fastexplorer, & I'm terrified to touch the registry
but thanks for the warnings C7. You 3 have been
more helpful than pages of a Google search (M$, dev-
eloper stuff, all way over my head), so thanks. I'll keep looking. Cheers -Tye

If/when you bite the bullet and decide to dive into the Registry, it is a very simple matter to create a new Restore Point first.

Before creating your Restore Point make sure your computer is as clean as possible (and I don't mean Brasso or Windolene) - make sure all Anti Virus etc is all up to date, in IE go to Tools>Internet Options and Delete Cookies and Delete Files, empty your Recycle bin and delete any bits and pieces you no longer want. Then create your Restore Point - even if you don't need to use that Restore Point, it is nice to know that one has a nice clean Restore Point to return to at any time anyway, if things go pear-shaped!
