How do you control what appears in your IE browser when you right click on a web page. I recently found I had ISearch toolbar installed and although i've successfully removed it I still get 'isearch the web' when I right click on a webpage. Anyone know how to stop this?

It's a registry edit. Here's the info for XP (looks like for all from 95 on up too):

"How do I remove unwanted options that appear on right-click menus after installing software?"

Usually, all that is required is to remove the appropriate key under the shellex\ContextMenuHandlers key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT for file type "*".

Now here's the link to the info on the site I found using google (I hope this is okay!): fix right click menu [jfitz.com]

I HIGHLY recommend you read the whole article THOROUGHLY!

Thanks for that vkaryl. I actually just figured out another way a moment ago: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt
which im glad to see is how that page says to do it.
In that key I found an entry for the isearch and deleted it.

Glad it worked out.... "volunteer" add-ins are the pits, aren't they?
