  • in the Registry Editor, go to Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ShdExt - this probably stands for Shield Extension
  • double-click the (Default) string value and prefix its data with some dashes (I used the prefix ----LegacyDisable----)
  • then go to Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ShdExt
  • again, double-click the (Default) string value and prefix its data with some dashes
  • you don't have to logoff/logon - the changes take place immediately!
