crowded "open with" drop down menu

When I open certain programs I get the "open with" menu. How can I get rid of the multidude of selections that should not be on it?

Here's another clear page. Make a backup before you make changes to registry!

OpenWithView - Disable/Enable items in the 'Open With' dialog-box of Windows

You may need to rt click >properties>compatibility>run as admin

so you can disable items.
