How to remove .RAR options from Win 2K menus?

(I'm a disabled senior on a small Social Security pension, so I have
to rely on hand-me-down computers and software and that means I'm
still running Win2K, but I'm hoping that I can find an answer for my
problem in this group, as the Windows 2000 newsgroup is not very
active anymore)

A while back I downloaded a file that was compressed with something
called RAR.

I ended up downloading and installing an RAR file utility called
WinRAR and now my Windows 2000 menus are cluttered with RAR menu
items.

For example, now in Windows Explorer, when I right click on a file
name, on the little menu that drops down, no less than *four* RAR
items now appear:

* Add to archive...
* Add to "Archive.rar"
* Compress and email...
* Compress to "Archive.rar" and email....

I find this a bit annoying and would like to clean up the clutter on
the menus. But I would prefer not to have to remove WinRAR
altogether.

How can I do this?

1. Start the WinRAR program.
2. Click Options in the menu, click Settings
3. Go to the Integration tab
4. In the Shell Integration group, uncheck "Integrate WinRAR into shell" and
click OK.

Many thanks, Jon! That did the trick!!
