In my right click drop down context menu that contains browser comands such as back , cut, paste , undo, select all, wallpaper,etc. I have acquired a hardcore movie shortcut which takes me to a xxx site which I do not want. I was wondering how it got there and how to remove it. I know nothing, so please help

Do this to get rid of the context menu entry:

Go to Start > Run > Regedit, and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt

Under MenuExt you will see subfolders named for the menu entries in question.

Click one of them and look in the right pane.

The default value points to a htm file.

Rightclick the menu entry you wish to remove, and choose Delete from the menu.

Cheers,
