When I right click a file in Windows Explorer there is a long delay.  I believe this is due to the large number of options that installed programs have added:

Play in Winamp, Enqueue in Winamp, Add to Winamp's bookmark list, Add to Sync List, Add to Burn list, Add to Now playing list, Add to playlist, Play with Media Player, Scan with AVG, Stuffit, Winzip etc.

Can I remove the right-click options without removing the actual programs (I never access them this way).  I want to be able to rename files quickly with right-click.
