Just noticed your post here, Sleeper. I agree with you, and you may want to add your opinion as a reply to my post in the "Eraser Suggestions" forum (titled "Change how Eraser options listed in Recycle Bin context menu").

I found a way to remove all those eraser entries in the context menu.
You can do it by editing the registry at this key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell\
remove the following entries:
erasext2, erasext3, erasext4, erasext5, erasext6 & erasext7

As Always make a backup just in case.
I removed the entries yesterday 8/13 and eraser still working properly.

Thanks for that information. Doing that, I assume, leaves just the "Erase Recycle Bin" option in the context menu and removes the 6 other options. I wonder what method of erasing it is that the "Erase Recycle Bin" option uses?

Oh. You only mentioned six (2,3,4,5,6 & 7). So, that means that you now have no mention of Eraser at all in your Recycle Bin's context menu?

Will it be possible to disable some of these entries directly in eraser options?

Would be much better than using registry editor...

Hi andreasm1982

If you don’t want to edit the options yourself then you may wish to wait for Eraser V6. Work will soon start on V6 and feature requests can be made in the Eraser Suggestions thread.
