How to Right click on a PC - using mac mouse

I'm using a mac mouse on a PC and am unable to right click.
The usual ctrl Click doesnt work on a Pc and shift F10 Is not user friendly,
any ideas? I have heard of a patch type thing that allows windows to use ctrl click but so far i havn't found it.
Any help would be much appreciated

If it's Apple's Mighty Mouse, you simply right-click.
