    Here are a couple old goodies compatible with Win7, by that i mean runs with administrator privileges

    Command Prompt Here
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    @="Command Prompt Here"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""
    

    Take Ownership of any File or Directory
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
    
    Register DLL/OCX/AX
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell]
    @="none"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\runas]
    @="&Register"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\runas\command]
    @="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""
     
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell]
    @="none"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\runas]
    @="&Register"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\runas\command]
    @="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""
     
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\axfile\shell]
    @="none"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\axfile\shell\runas]
    @="&Register"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\axfile\shell\runas\command]
    @="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""
    

    What entries do i need for UnRegister DLL/OCX/AX ?

    This doesn't work
    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\Shell\UnRegister\command]
    @="regsvr32.exe /u \"%1\""
    
    Also, how would I go about having both Command Prompt Here & Take Ownership of any File or Directory because they both occupy
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    @=
    and
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @=

    Here is some I use for right-click My Computer


    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ;--------------------------------------------------
    ;This is the Right_Click_Options.reg file
    ;--------------------------------------------------
    
    
    ;Adds Registry Editor right click of MY Computer
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\regedit]
    @="Registry Editor"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\regedit\command]
    @="Regedit.exe"
    
    ;Adds Device Manager to right click of MY Computer

    @="rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL"
    
    ;Adds LogOff to right click of MY Computer
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Logoff\command]
    @="shutdown -l -f -t 5"
    
    ;Adds Reboot to right click of MY Computer
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Reboot\command]

    ;Adds Shutdown to right click of MY Computer
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Shutdown\command]
    @="shutdown -s -f -t 5"

    (OP)
    if by that you mean
    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\axfile\Shell\UnRegister\command]
    @="regsvr32.exe /u "%1""
    
    then no, that doesn't work either

    Here is VBS file that will create blank text files of different file extentsions. These show up when you create new file via Right Click > New menu.
    Code:
    Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.VBS\ShellNew\FileName","template.vbs"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.BAT\ShellNew\FileName","template.bat"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.CMD\ShellNew\FileName","template.cmd"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.SIF\ShellNew\FileName","template.sif"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.INI\ShellNew\FileName","template.ini"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.REG\ShellNew\FileName","template.reg"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.PS1\ShellNew\FileName","template.ps1"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.NFO\ShellNew\FileName","template.nfo"
    objShell.RegWrite "HKCR\.XML\ShellNew\FileName","template.xml"
    The Data Param pre-populates the .reg so I don't have to keep re-type it every time.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.reg]
    @="regfile"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.reg\ShellNew]
    "Data"="Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00"

    I found that User Account Control (UAC) was giving me a 0x80070005 "Access Denied" error when trying to right-click and run regsvr32.exe "%1" on Windows 8.1 Update.

    After some searching, I found that I could use Powershell to run it as an Administrator.

    Here is the modified *.reg file that uses Powershell so you can register and unregister DLLs, even when running under UAC:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell]
    @="none"
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\DllRegisterServer]
    @=""
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\DllRegisterServer\command]
    @="powershell -c start -verb runas regsvr32.exe \"%1\""
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\DllUnregisterServer]
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\DllUnregisterServer\command]
    @="powershell -c start -verb runas regsvr32.exe /u \"%1\""
