So what I want to do is add a context menu so that when a user right clicks on any windows folder they should see "Watch this Folder", if they choose this menu item it should add the folders name to the program to be watched, but if they right click on a folder that is being watched I need it to read "Stop Watching this folder" and that remove the folder from the program.
 
So when the user right clicks on an unwatched folder it says "Watch this folder", User selects this option, passes the folder name and tells the program to run the function "watchThisFolder". Or if the user right clicks on a folder that is being watched they see a menu item that says "Stop Watching This folder", User selects this option it passes the folder name and tells the program to run the function "stopWatching".
 

Any body able to help me or atleast point me in the right direction?

Sounds like what you really want to do is create a shell extension. Michael Dunn wrote a whole series of articles describing how you do that. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing Shell Extensions - Index[^]
