    I have introduced a new drop down option "Encrypt" at right click to all file types - therefore I had to add it in the registry as :
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Encrypt
    Now this drop down would be visible to all type of files at their right click.
    But I also have files of type .crypt
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.crypt
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\encryptedfile (encryptedfile is defined of type .crypt)
    Now I DO NOT want this drop down Encrypt to be visible when I right click files of type .crypt (or encryptedfile)
    For the rest of the files the menu Encrypt should be visible (enabled).
    How can that be achieved?
    I wish this functionality to be achieved by command line Registry modification, not by some third party tool or through C++, C# code
    Thank you very much
