"Open With" broken in context menu

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

The only option available after right-cliking on an image file and selecting
"Open With" is another "open with" that doesn't do anything. Nothing in the
kb, and nothing seems to be wrong with the context menu handlers in the
registry. Does anybody have an idea as to how to fix?

    If that looks like the problem, see this..

    Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers
