Open with - no list

When I right click on any .jpg file I used to get options when I selected "Open With". Now, there is nothing to select from.
How can this be fixed?

Is this a recent occurrence?

If so, perhaps you can point to some reason or some change made. If so, you can try "System Restore" to see if it could undo the changes.

It's been going on for a long time. It happens with any .jpg file.

(NT) Did you try the old hold down the SHIFT KEY method?

Yes, I've tried to shift and right click but just get an "Open With" box and nothing else. (no selections)

Once I get the Open With I can then browse for another app to open it with.

Yes, seems dumb but it's a trademark issue with this company.

and many other discussions are open about this.

There is something worth mentioning. The most common cause is a registry cleaner. And while that's inconclusive the issue is indeed open and I fear the OS maker is going to leave this area busted.

I've given up on open with and have gone to opening the appropriate software then File Open.
