Windows 7: Two Windows media player autoplay handlers

Two Windows media player autoplay handlers

Whenever I insert a DVD, the autoplay menu will pop up and there will be a bunch of handlers but for some reason there is always two windows media player handlers in the auto play menu. This also happen in the autoplay menu found in control panel: when I open the list of programs under "DVD movie", there will be two WMP handlers. Is there a way to fix it by editing the registry or maybe reinstalling WMP?

ID assume your both running x64? There's usually an entry for both 64 and 32 bit variants. 32bit is the default player tho.
