Right click option

I need to code an application such that:
1. If the user right clicks any file in the explorer, three options should appear in the popup window (like for example, when winzip is installed, we get three options like "add to zip", "add to xxx.zip" and "zip and email" in the popup).

What should I do to achieve this? Is there any registry entry to be set? Also, I need to put an icon in such a popup.

yeah,
    Thanks for the link. It was useful. But, what I meant was to add the Context menu for every file. And, I found that it can be done using an ATL COM object. Just trying to do that.

Thanks for the help.

Got the clue from the following site. It has to be done using shell extensions. It is completed. Thanks for the help.
