    The Finger Lakes Region
    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.

    Far from here
    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.
