Generally referred to as the right-click menu, the Windows context menu permits a quick ability to perform various file operations. Some software applications add their own operations within the context menu. The Norton Internet Security software adds an operation group to your right-click menu during installation. These menu items are stored and controlled from within the Windows Registry. If you want to remove these items, you can delete them using the Windows Registry Editor.
