cheetah context menu handler installed
Windows 7, 32bit.

In Windows explorer, the "folder" pane is on the left, the "file" pane is on the right. In my install I have the appropriate context menu entries when right clicking in the "file" pane. However, in the "folder" pane, the entries for git are doubled.

My fix was to delete the Git-Cheetah keys from the following two registry locations:
HKCR\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\
HKCR\Directory\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\

Assuming this really is about git-cheetah only (not the registry-based content menu entries nor TortoiseGit installed in parallel nor any combination of these), it seems we had such reports before:

I slowly start to think that all those reports might have to do with having the registry based context menu and git-cheetah installed. Could the reporter post a screenshot of the context menu with double entries?
