How To Remove Intel Menu (Graphics Properties, Graphics Options, & Intel TV Wizard) From Windows 7 Desktop Context Menu

Users who have been running Windows 7 on PCs with Intel graphics might have already asked this question themselves. If you are confused with the title, when you install Intel Graphics Media Accelerator for Windows 7, it adds three options to the Windows 7 desktop context menu (right-click menu): Graphics Properties, Graphics Options, and Intel (R) TV Wizard.

Since many of us use these options once in a blue moon, removing these options will make the context menu leaner and cleaner. But if you open Intel Graphics Properties, you will not be able to see any option that lets you remove these three options from the desktop context-menu.

    Tried this on a Windows 7 PC and it removes from the registry as shown but the icon is still in the system tray and I’m still able to access the menu. I’m needing for the same reason as Sean, to stop pupils getting around display group policies. Any ideas?
