    Hi,


    In order to remove contextual menu items (Scan with BitDefender, File Shredder or BitDefender File Vault), first of all please make sure that you have the latest BitDefender built: 14.0.30.357. To check this, right-click on the BitDefender icon next to the clock and choose About. If you do not have the latest built, right-click on the BitDefender icon again and choose Update now, then restart your computer when asked.


    BitDefender uses three different files for the contextual menu:


    - for BitDefender File Vault: bdfvsctx.dll


    - for Scan with BitDefender: bdshellext.dll


    - for File Shredder: fshredctx.dll


    These files are located in C:\Program Files\BitDefender\BitDefender 2011.


    In order to remove an item from the contextual menu, please follow these steps:


    1. Restart your computer in Safe mode, as explained below.


    2. go to C:\Program Files\BitDefender\BitDefender 2011 and find the file corresponding to the item you want to remove and rename the .dll extension in .dl_ :


    - for BitDefender File Vault: bdfvsctx.dll -> rename it to bdfvsctx.dl_


    - for Scan with BitDefender: bdshellext.dll -> rename it to bdshellext.dl_


    - for File Shredder: fshredctx.dll -> rename it to fshredctx.dl_


    3. in the same location, find the update_components.xml file and open it. Then find this entry:


    <Product enabled="1"


    and set it to 0:


    <Product enabled="0"


    4. Restart your computer normally and the contextual menu item will be removed.


    Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need further assistance.
