Mac OS X - Dropbox - Disable contextual shortcut (disable dropbox option when right-clicking a file/folder)

Dropbox on OSX now tries to install a contextual menu item.
This slows down the system under Mac OS X 10.6 and lower.
If, like me you don't want this and want to have the freedom to turn this off:

First, Quit Dropbox from the menubar icon.

Remove or rename the following file to something else (otherwise it'll get put back in)
/Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/Resources/DropboxHelperInstaller.tgz

Then, navigate to /Library/DropboxHelperTools
and delete everything in there.

To undo this, rename the file back again at:
/Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/Resources/DropboxHelperInstaller.tgz
