It could be an add-on that is messing things up.  Have you tried it with Internet Explorer (No Add-ons), which you will find on your Start Menu under All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools.  If this works, then you can troubleshoot your normal IE connections by selecting Tools menu -> Manage Add-ons -> Enable or disable Add-ons.

Correct, also you can consider using a different webbrowser, if you use copy and paste you will find Mozilla firefox perfect for you! Also it uses much less of your computer!

Click on the Tools menu at the right end of your bar of tabs for different web pages you have opened.  (If you don't see a Tools menu there, then click on the double >'s at the very end of that bar and you will see it listed in a drop down menu.)  Then select Manage Addons in that menu, and click on the Enable or Disable Addons that scrolls out from that menu option.   You will see a page like the one I've attached as a file to this comment. Click on  each Enabled Addon in the list and then click the Disable button.  You may have to start Internet Explorer again after doing this. Check if your right click menu problem goes away (it should, since IE with no Addons got rid of the problem.)  Now you go back to the list of Disabled Addons and enable one at a time, possibly restarting IE, and keep doing it until an Addon causes the problem to appear again.  Now you've found the culprit, and you can uninstall that Addon.
