WinSCP 429 / Win64: Drag&Drop shell extension remove

The installer of WinSCP 429 installed the Drag&Drop shell extension but I specifically have chosen in the custom install NOT to install the shell extension because of security considerations. I then Uninstalled WinSCP again using the uninstaller. But apparently the shell extension is still installed. (When I check with the portable version of WinSCP, drag and drop is still available). Is there a way to remove this shell extension? I don't like having any services etc running without my consent.

best regards

Have you restarted your machine after uninstalling WinSCP?

Ok, I've forgot that on 64 bit system WinSCP cannot detect if extension is installed, so the option is available always.

Is there 64-bit shell extension or are we talking about 32-bit shell extension?
