Remove Unwanted Programs from the 'Open With' List
When you rt-click a file, you see the 'Open With' command. Whenever you use any program to open such a file, it gets added to this list, as Windows remembers that you had used it once; if if you were UNABLE to use it for opening that particular file type. If you find too many such unwanted programs in that list, you can remove them with some registry editing.

That's fine and good except you didn't give any information about how to actually edit it out, click on the "more" link expecting to get the fix and you get an Ad page. Not my idea of help. I signed up thinking this was a place to find answers, guess I was wrong.
