Removing "Search Freecorder Customized Web Search for..."

Hi.

My son installed Freecorder hoping it would help him download YouTube vids on to his MP4 player. Me, I like things simple, so was cheesed off by added toolbars and stuff - so I uninstalled them. All fine, except when I highlight a word or phrase and then right-click for the search drop-down menu, instead of the usual option to 'Google search for...', I now have 'Search Freecorder Customized Web Search for...'

I have looked at all my Firefox extensions and add-ons, and also at my program list for things to uninstall (anything to do with Freecorder, Applian or any other unwanted garbage), but there's nothing obvious there.

So, how can I revert my right-click search option to 'Google', and how can I destroy the a***holes responsible?

Ta very much.

That search from the context menu is controlled by the search engine that is selected in the Search Bar.
