    Hi,

    If i right click a file and go to open with it list's windows apps and if i open with that windows app VMware Fusion starts and my emulated XP opens up.

    I don't want this how do i remove it? I only want OS X apps showing in finder not windows apps.

    Email links in Safari also opens up VMware Fusion and then outlook!

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I will post an image because i have a hard time explaining it.

    I don't think you can remove the options without removing Fusion.

    Don't click on those apps and you'll be fine.

    I do not have VMware to check this on but according to this information

    Virtual Machine Settings > Sharing

    Then there is a checkbox about sharing applications

    Then delete the Applications folder within the Virtual Machine Package.
