Go to C:\windows\Sendto to remove items from the sent to portion.
Some are in the registry in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
and some under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extentions
They are of course repeated. Do you know how to back up the registry or do a scandisk \restore before you go deleting items from the registry?

I used several utilities to try to edit this right click menus but to no avail, they do not include it (Tweak, Tweaki for power users, X-set-up etc.)
Is there a software that allows it, without having to use the manual editing with regedit?

Go to Run and type Regedit.

Go to the following keys (some may or may not be present on your computer) and delete the key which corresponds to the program in question.

I am not aware of any.

If you have Windows98, this is not as big a deal as Windows95 because if you make a mistake, you can always bring yourself back with Scanreg /restore. But if you haven't done it before, you will want to learn about it first. Norton's comes with t registry editing tool, but it is still a manual process. It just keeps track of your changes for you. It may be that you want to just live with it.
