    I recently cleaned my registry and now I notice something that bothers me. I use a lot of different movie players on my computer, and when I right-click a file now, and choose "play with", all of my programs that play movies are not listed. In fact, only 2 are: wmp *of course, diskjuggler???? How do I reclaim my programs file associations, so that I can see all of my video players in one spot for easy selection?

    Use one of the following methods:

    Run Windows Explorer
    Navigate to a directory that has a file you want to change in it
    Right click
    Choose properties
    Click "Change" next to "Opens With..."
    Pick the program and click the check box "always use..."

    Second method:

    Run Windows Explorer
    Tools
    Folder Options
    File Types (tab)
    Find the file type
    Click "Change"
    Pick the program and click the check box "always use..."

    what can i say , u need new registry key registrations for fixing it ... that registry cleanup made it ! . If you're not using original copies u can also run key registrations again .
