    Changing my short-cut menu (IE6/WinXP home)

    Some misbehaved site has hi-jacked my IE6 shortcut menu, and added an item that I would like to remove. Could anyone please tell me how to change this short-cut menu (add/change/delete).

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick response. It's my right-click menu that I'm trying to fix.

    I think you mean the right click context menu. There may be a gui way, but you can go to the Registry ("regedit" no quotes in the run box):

    HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMenuExt
    Action: Each subkey of this key represents a menu item. Select and delete any that you don't want.

    If you're concerned about deleting the value. export the key before you delete.

    This sounds easy to get rid of, but do you mean your favorites, or links? Where is this item showing up? Forgive me for not being sure where you mean by "IE shortcut menu". Also to prevent what happened, download and run Ad Aware 6.0 and Spybot Search and Destroy to get rid of the hijacking spyware. Added (SMBP): Patrick Kolla's Spybot has "two teirs"--and the more advanced features can be tweaked and nuanced to do quite a lot.
