Windows 7: Windows 7 'Open With' Context Menu not expanding.

Windows 7 'Open With' Context Menu not expanding.

Hey Peeps,

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installed on my system. Had to do some Windows Updates recently and since Tuesday I have noticed that the Open With context menu does not expand.

I have not installed anything funny or weird, had no virusses or malware, and it just does not make sense at all.

As can be seen in the screenshot attached, I do a normal right-click (tried Shift+Right Click - does the same) hover over the 'Open With' item and then....nothing. This is a major pain in the neck as I open several files using Notepad.

I prefer not to perform a repair install of Windows 7 as the repair install usually overwrites installed updates. Any advice or tricks I can try will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks.

What about doing a System Restore to before the problem started? See if that fixes it.
