    Well there is /YourHardDrive/Users/YourUserName/Library/Contextual Menu Items/ and /YourHardDrive/Library/Contextual Menu Items/. Look into both of those locations to see if something you don't want is there, then robot.

    Assuming that's a real question :D

    Change "yourharddrive" and "yourusername", which are placeholders, to whatever is on your own computer.

    It doesn't matter as those commands are not separate contextual menu items and are not removable.

    I don't think your username can be : iHamed (lower case ONLY)

    The name you must use is the one of the home folder.

    It might be : ihamed

    To check the name of the home folder, look at : Macintosh HD/Users/home_folder_name
    (name of the "little house").

    That path doesn't exist by default. As I said in the earlier post, you can't remove "Compress" and "Burn" from the contextual menu; they're not separate files or configured by a preference. They may disappear if you enable Simple Finder in the Parental controls System Preference, but that severely limits the functionality of the computer in general.
