It's in the windows 2000 topic area so he's going to be on win 2000...

r u getting the 'Open With..." option after the first menu seperator ( a devider line in the menu) or before the seperator?

if possible export the registry key 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*' and paste it here.

Thank you guys, i have managed to solve the problem. t was a jpg file, that inspite of mine using shift + right click option was opening in Notepad, hence i installed, Adobe photoshop, and it registered itself as a default editor for jpg files. Hence the problem is resolved for now. But, thank you, appreciate your efforts greatly.
