Windows 7: Right Click Menu Display Problem

Right Click Menu Display Problem

Hi all,

I have a strange problem. When I right click on a file (.exe, .dll, .jpeg, ...) I end up with a screen as in the attachment. (It should be like in )

However, there is no problem when I right click on desktop, it is as it should be (no blue band). I have a desktop PC and a laptop and both has the same problem. I tried system restore but no solutions What can be the reason? A virus or a malware (despite Avira and A-squared installed)?

Is it always the same entry that shows in blue? If yes, what is it (hard to read the entries in your language). Anyhow, the desktop right click menu is different to other right click menus.

All the entries are in blue (winrar commands, copy, cut, etc.) I will format win7 on my desktop PC but dont want to do the same for my laptop. I want to learn the magic behind this. If you want english version of the menu, it is as follows:

Create PDF and Bitmaps using PDF creator
open with
Share with
Scan selected files with avira
add to archive
and regular winrar stuff
load previous versions
create shortcut

Problem Solved:

The reason is a beta version of a-squared ant malware installed. After uninstall it, the problem disappeared.
