In Windows 7 it is better to use Background and this can be added to registry so no modding dll's
Background in Win 7 means anywhere on the desktop, any white space on any folder or drive. It's basically right clicking on a blank space anywhere.

Here is mine which has Add Remove, Cmd Prompt, Create Restore Point, Kill Not Responding Tasks

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Add Remove]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Add Remove\command]
@="control appwiz.cpl"


@="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Create Restore Point]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Create Restore Point\command]
@="WScript.exe %windir%\CreateRestorePoint.vbs"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Kill Not Responding Tasks]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Kill Not Responding Tasks\command]
@="C:\\Windows\\System32\\taskkill.exe /F /FI \"STATUS eq NOT RESPONDING\""

You can get code for CreateRestorePoint.vbs here http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__955442
