right-click key

When I am on a web page and press the right-click key (which key is to the immediate right of the Start-button key) on the keyboard of my Windows XP computer, most of the time I get the right-click menu but sometimes I get a "Macromedia Flash Player 6" menu (of sorts). What can I do to my computer to stop getting this Macromedia menu. Thank you very much.

Most likely, it has to do with the equipment being used but nobody would know unless you told us what. Could also be simply that drivers were installed or drivers were not installed. Again, something you'd have to reveal.

Please note that just above the text editor (where you enter a question on the forum) is the following paragraph, and if certain information is not present in your question, our reply may not be very helpful:

To Cursorcowboy: Thank you for your response. But please tell me specifically what you want me to reveal and how do I go about finding the information that you want me to reveal? Thank you.
