    hi there everyone,

    i am trying to figure out how to eliminate an option from the right click menu "open with" when i right click on an image file. there must be some way to do it!!! please check out my other posting/thread and see that we have made some progress editing the registry...but just can't get this last thing. if anyone has any ideas, please help out. i am hoping that posting over here might catch the attention of a registry editing genius.


    i already have a thread going on over at digital photography and imaging, and i hate to start another thread, but this is more of a regedit question... you can take a look at it here... http://forums.techguy.org/digital-photography-imaging/485227-can-anyone-recommend-photo-editing.html[/URL]

    please feel free to check out the entire thread, but if you pay special attention to my posts with the screen shot, you'll have a better idea of what i'm talking about.

    hey whitphil,
    thank you very much for your posting with the link to the article. i am on a different computer right now and won't have access to my other one (the one we've been working on) until tomorrow, but i will DEFINITELY give it a shot. I AM HOWEVER A REAL ROOKIE WHEN IT COMES TO EDITING THE REGISTRY, so i will probably have a couple of questions.

    according to that article though, i should be able to perform that function, correct???

    i assumed (incorrectly of course) that once i opened up the registry, that i would be able to immediately identify the programs and remove the ones that i wanted to... that of course was not the case. how will i be able to identify the program? please see my other post to see where i got lost. here is a screen shot of what the rededit looked like and the only program that i was able to identify was mspaint.

    thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction, and any other help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    You're not in the right part of the registry. You need to follow the instructions in this section:

    Hi pfunk_40,

    Goto: http://support.microsoft.com/winxp and in the right-hand panel search window for the knowledge base plugin: KB322756

    The webpage referenced in the search will tell you how to backup, edit and restore the Registry using regedit32 or regedit, so just click on the search link found to goto that webpage.

    ozrom1e's suggestion of ERUNT is a good one too.
