How to change Mathematicas menus on the fly?

Dear Friends:
I am using Mathematica 4.0 on a Windows2000 computer.

Now, my problem is that I would like to change the Mathematica 
menus when a package is loaded. I have seen this question before 
but never a full answer to the question.

I have managed to load the file, change it, and call


to change the menubar.

However, I still have some problems

1) The window menu looses all the names of the currently open windows
   (not strange since theses are not defined in
   Is there a way to read the current menubar from Mathematica?

2) The context menu (right click menu) disappear. It's possible to
   change the context menu by changing the file, but 
   can this be done from Mathematica?

If anyone has solved these problems I would be grateful.

Thanks in advance
/Mikael Adlers
