My 2009 Intel iMac running OSX 10.8.2 keeps adding duplicate entries of programs in the "Open With" contextual sub-menu when opening files from within Finder (See screen grab below). It adds them  only occasionally, but once it's added a duplicate, the duplicate doesn't go away. Some programs are listed as many as 4 times. It doesn't matter how frequently I use a given program; and by the way, I've checked - I only have one installation of each of these...


Anyone know how to fix this?
