Slow computer? Clean the Explorer context menu

If your computer is too slow, you use Windows XP, the right-click context-menu needs ages to load, and you do not want to throw aways your computer to get a new one every 6 months because you are against excessive consumerism (see The Story of Stuff, by Annie Leonard), there are some basic way to make your computer faster:
  • Defragmentate the hard disks,
  • Disable the automatic search function for network printers and folders,
  • Clean the Windows Registry
  • Clean the Explorer context menu:
    WinZip, WinRar, Groove Sync, Anti-virus, Windows Media Player… be gone!

is great for this purpose:
