	The problem is with the LaunchServices database.  If you search on  
MacOSXHints.com, you'll find several discussions and suggestions of  
how to resolve the problems you all have described.  Most of the  
solutions posted there involve working in the Terminal to force one's  
Mac to rebuild that database;  there do exist GUI apps for system  
maintenance that should allow one to accomplish the same thing.  Hope  
that helps.
