I have two entries for the same program on the right click Open With
menu for image files. Looked in all the expected places in the registry
but I don't see a double entry. What would be the procedure to remove
one?
OR....if I remove that listing all together and re-enter with one of the
context edit utilities - would that be a solution?

You may want to look all of these over before proceeding.

As Wesley said. If that does not help, generate the file association
information and post the log here.

Cool!

Ramesh, you are a busy fella. Faster than F3 in the Registry Editor and
faster than
RegScanner for searching one file type.

My solution was to download the freeware Open Expert from
http://www.baxbex.com and it worked perfectly.
The recent installation of the new Corel Paint Shop Pro X rearranged the
right click context menu. In Open Expert I could see the actual coding
for the path. Somehow an orphan reference to a very old Paint Shop Pro
in the registry had been picked up by the Corel installation. It was
that old it had ~ in the name listing( for e.g. Paint~) Oddly enough it
would open the still in place previous version 9 of this software.
Open Expert allows shuffling up or down of the items in the right
context open with menu.
Now my menu listing is tidy and in order.
I have saved the references given in these responses and I thank you.

Thank you, Wes :) Just thought this might come in handy while
troubleshooting file asso. / open-with related issues.
