Lost the option to scan when right clicking a file

Hi folks,I seem to have lost the option to scan a folder or file with my anti software when right clicking the folder/file.There's no option to scan atall.I haven't changed anything.Any ideas what this can be?Thanks.

Hi, dunno what might cause that, but a probable solution would be to un-install the program and then re-install it.

I used to have the optio to scan with my antivirus(avira)malwarebytes and spyware terminator now there's none of them?The scan option has gone completely?

The second program on this link (File Menu Tools) looks as though it might be helpful - give it a go

I tried everything I could think of.In the end it was a system restore that put it back to normal.I haven't got a clue what could have caused it as I didn't change a thing.Sorted now.Thanks folks.
