I am not sure about Addthis which searches when I right click. Is it ok? How do I delete it?

"Addthis" has appeared as a search tool when I highlight and right click. Is it reputable and how do I delete it.

Chosen solution

That "right-click" search engine is the one that is selected in the Search Bar. Change the search engine which is selected in the search bar and the search used in the context menu (right-click) will change.
