These context menu extensions are called "Shell Extensions". There are
several, including adding items to my computer or anywhere in Windows
Explorer's folder tree, right click new and right clicking on icons.
Icon overlays, Copy and Drag effects and much much more.

These google results summarise what your looking for.

As for .NET versions, I think there is very limited interoperability.
You may be forced to buy a 3rd party component to achieve it, if it is
at all possible.

The example I wanted to follow meant hacking away at the
intermediate .NET code because VB is unable to work with some of
Window's (written in C and C++) complex types.

Anyway the feature your looking for is called Shell Extensions, maybe
since I've last looked, you may have more luck than me.

This looks pretty much what your looking for. It's C# version but i'm
sure you could fight through it. VB and C# are extremely similar

like WinZIP!
