XP Explorer problem

I had an older version of eraser installed on XP and integrated into explorer (gave options of “Erase” and “Erase secure Move” etc) when you right click a file for deletion. I uninstalled it and installed version 6.0.6.1376 which works fine, except I now have both versions in Explorer which is annoying, obviously the uninstall didn’t remove this feature. Any idea how I can remove the old eraser options from explorer :eek:

Cheers, Zoar

Those are the values you'll need to remove. (ValueData is the value of the registry value)
