    I have tried Onyx, CleanMyMac, clearing LaunchServices.plist and loads of other things (too many to list) but when I right click on any file, I get the same entries repeated in the open with menu.

    ie;
    Right Click an .avi and get Open With-> VLC, Quicktime, Other... Vlc, Quicktime, Other... VLC, Quicktime, Other...

    Anyone know any apps that might be causing it, or anything I can look out for that might fix it?

    Thank you so much in advance (and yes I did mroogle it, but found nothing that worked).

    Did you do this?:
    Quadruplication in open with menu

    One app that I would not recommend, based on the number of complaints that have been posted in this forum and elsewhere, is CleanMyMac. As an example: CleanMyMac cleaned too much

    Just tried that too, didn't work either :(

    THanks for trying to help.

    I am wondering if maybe something I have installed is causing it...
