Adobe Acrobat - Remove 'Combine Supported Files in Acrobat' context menu option

I like to keep my Windows installation as clean as possible, and that means going through the trouble of removing menu items I never use as they only slow down the system.
To get rid of Adobe Acrobat's context menu options, simply run the following command.
regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenu.dll"
For Acrobat 9, simply change the number.
regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenu.dll"
Another thing to take note of, x64 users have to change the command yet again.
regsvr32 /u "%programfiles(x86)%\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenu.dll"
regsvr32 /u "%programfiles(x86)%\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenu64.dll"
This doesnt actually work for me, I presume mainly due to the fact that its a 32bit program trying to unload a 64bit DLL. So if all else fails... resort to registry deletion.

That will get rid of the menu items shown below. 

Theres another one for folders.
Run this from a command console with admin access.
reg delete /f HKCR\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\Adobe.Acrobat.ContextMenu
On Acrobat 11+, you'll need to also use this (untested by me, posted in comments):
regsvr32 /u "%programfiles(x86)%\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat Elements\ContextMenuShim64.dll"
 Or, if you prefer to do it manually, search the registry for "{D25B2CAB-8A9A-4517-A9B2-CB5F68A5A802}" and delete it.
