    When I right click on an image on the desktop lets say and it pops up with the programs I have to choose from to open it with it shows 2 of each program. Like this


    Adobe Photoshop 7
    Adobe Photoshp 7
    Adobe ImageReady 3
    Adobe ImageReady 3
    GraphicConverter
    GraphicConverter

    And so on and so fourth. Why is this happening? How can I fix this? Thanks.

    AFAIK, the context menu keeps track of all apps available at the time - I see this behaviour when my backup (cloned) drive is plugged in.

    Search for an application, any application, and see where the two duplicate folders reside. Throw one away.

    I don't think that is it. There are 2 of every choice. Even safari and no duplicate folders. What folder holds the list in? Maybe there are 2 of each in the list or maybe there are 2 folders that contain the list you know what I mean?

    Now this is only for items that require a graphics program it looks like.

    Didja search first? I've answered this question a couple times now.

    Remove /Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices.6B.csstore
    Restart

    Poof, fixed.
