Acrobat X with Win7 x64 - missing right-click options

I'm running Acrobat X Pro and have noticed that within Windows Explorer folders when right-clicking supported files I know longer get the "combine supported" or "convert supported files" option?
I have not made any registry changes...I ran repair install for Acrobat but no joy. The known issues at Adobe does cover some combine file topics but not specifically my issue.
I can work around from the Acrobat Menu...just annoying that the file folder shortcut has disappeared!
Anyone else come across this?

Just some additional info': I have not tried an uninstall & clean install of Acrobat X Pro. I have no other known issues within the Win7 File/Folder environment. To the best of my recollection this right click option WAS working when I initially installed X. I ran 'Registry Clean-up' from Norton 360 a little while ago, but don't have the log on that...my suspicion is that it might have unwittingly removed the registry key?

do the following to see if you get them back

register the Contextmenu64.dll (if on a 64bit system)
         located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat Elements

 Open a command prompt as an administrator
 type:  cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat Elements
 
hit return

type:  regsvr32 Contextmenu64.dll

hit return

 check if these context menu's have returned for supported files.
