How to remove a name in the desktop menue

I re-installed a graphics driver on a Dell Computer and along with the driver it also installed a Catalyst utility, but then when I right-clicked on the desktop and selected the "Catalyst(R) Control center" I got an error saying that the program that that it was referring to could not be found.  So I went into add-Remove programs and uninstalled the program but it was still there in the menu.  So I went into the registry and deleted all references to "Catalyst", restarted the computer and it is still there in the menu.  How do I get it out of the menu?
I have inserted a picture of the menu that I am talking about.

The free version of Revo Uninstaller should remove the entry from Add & Remove Software for you.

The program has already been uninstalled but it left this in the menu when I right-click on the desktop I am uploading a picture so you can see what I am talking about. The uninstaller could not do anything with it

Check for "ACE" in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ Background \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers

And delete the entry
