Backing up the Registry is an important part of keeping your computer secure and running efficiently. Modifying any portion of the Registry should be done with the utmost care as incorrect usage of the Registry could make your computer inoperable.

If you are not comfortable editing the Windows Registry, there are two utilities to accomplish these Vista edits @ Vista Forums

If you prefer to use a Registry Editor application, this is a good one:

Registrar Registry Manager Free Light Version: Windows 2000 through Vista including x64 editions.

Resplendence has other good free utilities like AntiFreeze

'Send To Toys' does the SendTo (and more) and works on Vista also;
See our description in Tools & Tips

RegSeeker has a Tweak option - and it's non-install exe.
Remove shotcut arrows, add SendTo, CopyTo, and alot more.
Warning...as a Registry Cleaner it is very aggressive - use at own risk - make sure it is set to backup first if
used as Registry Cleaner...just can't recommend it for average user. Works on XP and Vista.
