The orange text determines the position of the menu. You can use Top, Middle instead of Bottom.
The red text dictates the name and location of the vbs file.
The green text is the location of the icon.
Save the file asand do not forget to change the file type from text to All files from drop down menu in Notepad before saving it. Name does not matter here at all. You can save as you like.
Now, double click the reg file and accept the security warnings and you will see the Eject option in right click context menu when clicked on a folder or any empty place inside folder or Windows 7 desktop.

Obviously, you might delete the bat files manually too.
