Hello My name is Andrew, and I have a weird one.

When I Right Click On certain files I receive 2 open with context menu options.

One works, and the other doesn't.
more specifically, when I right click on a document file I receive 2 of the menus, 

when I right click on an "unknown file type" I only receive the one - the one that doesn't work.

when I right click on Mp3's or other known media types, I still get only the one "Open With" that doesn't work.

The Open with that doesn't work Gives me a file association error which makes me think it's a shell issue so...

 

I have spent a couple hours on ShellExView and ShellMenuView removing all non-microsoft shell menu's and i even un-selected hide standard menu items to see if I could find this duplicate "Open With"

If I do a registry edit, I can remove all the context menu's but that one, which is weird, including the "Open (openas)" and "OpenDLG" Just to see if those were it, I ended up only removing the working "Open" Context Menu to which I have put back.

 

I frequently change file associations via the properties context menu. Sometimes I open Batch files to edit them with notepad and "Open With" is normally very useful for me. So changing default file associations is not really what I need help with.

 

Thank you to anyone who responds.

Attached are a few Images of what happens.
