When I right click on a web-page, an option that i don't want pops up among all other options (undo, paste, copy, etc.). How can I delete this option that i don't want?

If it's just internet explorer it shows up in, it's probably in the following registry key and can be removed:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\

There may be other instances of it there, and you can search the registry for them.

IE:  to remove 'Search using Copernic Agent' you could search for instances of that string in the registry...

Get ToolbarCop:
http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/utils/ToolbarCop.exe

ToolbarCop removes the Toolbars, Toolbar buttons and unwanted menu-extensions from Internet Explorer. It does not remove the spyware from the system entirely.

Additionally, run Ad-Aware scan (www.lavasoftusa.com). Update Ad-Aware before scanning
