    Hi,

     

    Ad-Aware shall be uninstalled from Control Panel's list of installed programs, deleting folders and files will leave a lot of registry posts. In your case it's a registry entry that Windows uses when showing the context menu that is the cause of your problem.

     

    You can use the tool CCleaner to remove that registry entry. Please, see the description on https://www.cnet.com/how-to/clean-up-your-windows-right-click-menu-with-ccleaner/ . Be careful when installing CCleaner and deselect all optional items or use the portable zip file instead of the installation program.
