    Hi guyz,

    somehow and i have no idea how, I have lost the "open with" option when opening files from within ms applications.

    "open with" does appear on the right click menu when im in explorer but
    If im in say MS word, and i click OPEN
    then goto an excel file i used to be able to right click it and select "open with" and pick excel, and it would open,

    however the "open with" option does not even appear now when i right click.

    any ideas?


    oh and its not the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With]
    @="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}" KEY
    as this refers just to open with menu vua explorer which isnt where im having my problem.
