Shell integrated context menus

I have a bunch of options to choose from when I right click on any given
file. How can I remove the less common options like "Add to archive"
from the menus? Is there any way I can modify the value of the menu
items also... like change the name.

I need to remove context menu items from various programs (Adobe,
WinRAR, Norton...).

See if the corresponding program offers an option to remove it's shell
extensions. If not, edit the registry.

Manage the context-menu entries for files, folders, drives and Namespace
objects:
