Hello Drugo,

You may have used "Open with" to select both the 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit IE .exe files to open this file with. That would have both of them listed.

Using the .reg file in that tutorial will only restore it's default associations, and will not clear the "Open with" menu. To remove items from the "Open with" menu, you could use the tutorial below instead.

Open with - Clean Up and Remove Programs

Hope this helps.

No, I don't. You could use the program to remove that entry if you like to only have one left.

If you like, export your HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xml key as a .reg file, and upload it here. I'll be happy to take a look at it.

It appears that you didn't successfully merge .reg file for .xml from the tutorial above completely if that's all you have for your .xml registry key.

Try merging it again being sure to approve all prompts.
