Cannot Download with IDM

Hi,

I was infected with a virus recently which did some damage to my computer, but i managed to take it out and clean up all the mess. Except for one thing.

I use a program called Internet Download Manager to download files and its integrated into my I.E.

now, the program still works perfectly, BUT there is an option to highlight a text in I.E and then right click and one of the list of options I could choose from is "Download with IDM" that option doesnt work anymore, clicking on it is useless. I have tried a countless number of things, uninstalling/reinstall etc... nothing worked. So how can I take that option out of I.E and have IDM reinstall or reintegrate itself ? (I have attached a pic. to better understand what im talking about)

Thanks.

Here is what I would do, step by step,

1. Close all the IE windows, make sure there is none in Task Manager.
2. Uninstall IDM.
3. Reboot the system
4. Run registry cleaner (CCleaner)
5. Remove any Temp files and Folder (CCleaner).
6. Install IDM and check if it working fine then
