right menu customization

Last response: in Windows XP

I use Windows XP Pro Edition.
Today, in my right click menu, some strange empty boxes appeared.
There is this strange command which is totally disfunctional. When I click on it, nothing happens. It's often seen under the "Open with" command.

I added a screenshot.

This thing happened after I played with Windows Media Player 10 and Media Player Classic.

I want to remove those boxes from the content menu.

Can you offer any help?

I think the last media/codec install screwed up the registry.

Start, run, regedit, file, export, save registry to a file with any name as a backup, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\explore, find the unwanted entry, delete this key, log out and log back in.
