I'm not a developer. I don't screw with Registry entries unless I know that they're going to work. Especially because this is the company's computer, not mine.

I thought that providing specifics on possible conflicts could be useful. For example, a list somewhere of "if you have X installed, you're going to see this error" would save you (and others) a lot of time answering/arguing about the same problem in the mailing lists. It's really not necessary to reply this way.

You should complain with the Samsung developers about that. Or better yet, their marketing people. Adding such a big image to the context menu which isn't even clickable I consider spam - there's no reason to show a stupid ad (yes, that's an ad!) to a context menu.

As Raymond Chen would say: "I bet somebody got a really nice bonus for that feature."

Certainly. But I don't have any idea where to submit a request/complaint/bug report where someone from Samsung might actually pay attention.
