  1. You've only given half the instructions.

    If you want to do it properly, do the following:

    1) Run the uninstaller from control panel as normal
    2) Run a registry clean with CCleaner, if the problem remains,
    3) Open Regedit, and back it up
    4) Hit Ctrl-F and delete all instances of "Magiciso". Ensure you delete the values and not the keys (folders).
    5) Reboot your PC
    6) Delete the Magiciso folder from C:\Program Files (x86).

    If you have done this properly, You will not need to close the explorer.exe to delete the folder as the .dll file was not loaded after the reboot.

    The context menu, and MagicISO will be gone completely.

    Run a CCleaner registry scan afterwards to clean up any other dead registry entries that may still be there.

    1. Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. But the above tutorial works fine without any problem. Using CCleaner is must for a Windows PC since it creates a lot of junk files. The registry should also be maintained in order to avoid errors. Thanks :-)

  2. When I close explorer, it closes the file in use window. Any tips?

    1. Go to task manager and click the process tab. Click "Show All Processes". Here find "misosh64.dll". End this then delete the folder.
