Clicking on unknown files takes you to the OPEN FILE menu.
There are programms listed there I deleted ages ago.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This list is based on the extension registration list.  You can access this list through any open Explorer window.  Click on View, Options, and File Types.  Remember the extension that the program(s) you deleted used when you saved files?  Scroll down this list, find them, and delete them.  The Open With... list should now reflect your changes.  Also, to add a program to the list, click on the "New Type" button and register its extension.  Note that most program automatically do this for you, but if you remove them manually, or sometimes use a third-party uninstaller, it may leave its registration intact.
