See more: C++ Windows menu
I just started with a new company, and my first task/assignment is to design a customized application in Windows 7 that starts up when I start Windows 7. The application is to contain an icon (which I created in VS 2008) such that when I click on it, a context menu displays with at least three menu items from which the user can launch the associated applications listed. The program/application is to be written in C++.

Since I haven't done development in some time, could someone point me in the right direction please as to how to develop context menus within the application that resides in the system tray? I need this completed this week, and I don't have the time/money to spend on a VS training course. Please advise. Thanks.

Given what you say about your experience I would be surprised if you could get this finished this week. However, take a look at Code Snippet Manager[^] which I wrote a while back. There is a section in there about sitting on the system tray and showing a context menu, which may help you.
