I would begin by visiting the malware forum and following the instructions at the top.

Then, if you get a clean bill of health, return here.

the problem came after i couldn't finish the uninstall of a program called "Contextview", and it has nothing to do with malware..

I wouldn't swear by that without checking. That said, don't you think that was a slightly important piece of information to share?

Have you tried reinstalling Contextview, and then uninstalling it again....for that matter, install Contextview and see if the problem continues...THEN uninstall it.

How did you uninstall it? Add/remove control panel, or an uninstall routine built by the company who made it?

Yes, I want you to go to

HKCR\Directory\Shell and export the key (file export) to your desktop, then open the key in notepad and paste the contents here.

I guess I might know where the problem lies. In the registry, you can put stuff so that it appears in menu you usually get when you right-click something. The uninstall removed the file, but didn't come to the registry key linking it to this file.

This is just a guess, could someone check this theory?
