Unfortunately, not much we can do to help you, then. Those are notorious for doing things like this to your system. It's time to re-format. Copy all of your data off to a backup drive (NOT including this keygen/crack) and do a complete format and re-install of your stuff.

The rule is to disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and finally identify the culprit. Scroll right to see the Company Name column in ShellExView.

Well, you can spend time doing that and it might work, or you can spend the same amount of time reformatting and reinstalling which will definitely work. Obviously up to you, but I'd opt for the guarantee rather than the possibility in this case. 16 infections and still having problems usually is not a promising situation for trial and error fixes.

Glad I could help. Thanks for reporting back Just a piece of advice stay away for illegal keygen cracked software or torrents that will harm your system.

Have a good day,
Captain

Your right click problem is solved, but have you removed all the malware that caused this problem? That's the real problem which the ShellViewer doesn't address or fix.

Find a good antivirus to start using from now. I use Avira, personally, as I find it to have the best real-world detection rate of all the products I've tested (Symantec, McAfee, AVG, ClamAV). I've yet to be infected by anything over the past 3 years.

The thing is that these files that made me the right-click error are not viruses, and an Antivirus wont find them.

These files just bugged the windows files in some way.. but are not viruses for sure.

Besides i think the Malewarebytes program is good enough for viruses and such...
