After removing Download Accelerator Plus and Copernic they both still appear on the right click options when browsing the web.How do I remove them?

This can be done by editing the registry (backup first). Select Start/Run, type regedit and press <Enter>.
Find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\ shellex\ContextMenuHandlers in the Registry Editor's left pane. Click the plus sign (+) next to 'ContextMenuHandlers' to see keys resembling Windows Explorer folders for every program that has options in the context
menu. Now select the key for the program that you thought you uninstalled. Double-click the (Default) value in the right pane to bring up an editing box that has
the Value data field highlighted. Press <Ctrl-C> to copy this string to the Clipboard. Then press <Esc>. Right-click the open key in the left pane and select Delete, then Yes. Press <Ctrl-F> to start a search. With the cursor in the 'Find what' field, press <Ctrl-V>
to insert the numbers you copied from the Value data field. Uncheck the Values and Data fields and click Find Next. The search should stop at a key inside HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID.
In the right pane, the default value's data should describe the program. Press <Delete> and then select Yes. You should never see the dearly departed program's menu option again.
