How to Remove Adobe Drive CS4 from the Context Menu

Posted by David  •  Jan 5th, 2009 4:41:31 pm - Subscribe | Mood: good | Music: Reggie and the Full Effect - J

Explains How to Remove Adobe CS4 from the Context Menu. You know, when you right a item on your desktop and it displays the Adobe Drive CS4...

Well here is a quick fix from the neowin.net to Remove the Adobe Drive CS4 menu from your right click menu. Simply follow these instructions.

1. Install & Uninstall

There are 2 ways to remove. (both listed here) Install Adobe CS4 Drive using the installer then uninstall it. This seems to get rid of it.

2. Manual Remove

Open Regedit and delete these two entries.

Windows XP / Vista 32bit


  1. Go to start
  2. Run
  3. Enter this: regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles%AdobeAdobe Drive CS4ADFSMenu.dll"

Windows 64bit

  1. Go to start
  2. Run
  3. Enter this: regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles(x86)%AdobeAdobe Drive CS4ADFSMenu.dll"

If you have any questions leave them in the box below. I will see if I can help out. BTW to access the regedit you need to open cmd prompt, and type regedit. (for those who do not know.)

I'm running 64bit and I had to use the "regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\ADFSMenu.dll"" to disable it. Notice that I use the same link as 32bit uses even if I'm using 64bit.

Also, backslashes are gone from the addresses.

This doesn't work on my Windows 7 x64 (and not on my ista x64 system either). Search through the registry and remove all of the keys:

{C95FFEAE-A32E-4122-A5C4-49B5BFB69795}

I'm going to leave this here so I can google it later.

There are 3 of them on my system, just delete them.

Adding the backslashes to the Windows 64bit version worked for me on Vista x64:

regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles(x86)%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\ADFSMenu.dll"

Just as a note for others:

I had to run the shell/command prompt as Administrator for the changes to take effect.

Thank you very much for the tip, dude.

Thank You! Same here in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, this worked like a charm for me:
regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\ADFSMenu.dll"
I installed Adobe CS4 and specifically unchecked Adobe Drive from installation and it it still installed the thing on my context menu.

Thanks. regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\ADFSMenu.dll" worked for me as well in W7 x64 Ultimate. Very nice to finally get rid of that annoying and, for me, completely useless item in the desktop context menu.

1. Go to Start
2. Run
3. Enter this one :

regsvr32 /u "%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\ADFSMenu.dll"

Enjoy and have a nice day!
