Multiple duplicate entries in Finder's "Open With" submenu

I keep seeing the same application too many times on the "Open With" submenu of the context menu from Finder, like here

Does it happen to you too? It looks dumb.

You need to rebuild the Launch Services Database by copying and pasting the following command in Terminal, then press "enter".

Code:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user;killall Finder
