    What file type are you right clicking?? This normally happens on "unknown" file types.

    Open regedit and navigate to

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Unknown\shell\openas\command

    the value should look like this:
    rundll32.exe shell32.dll,OpenAs_RunDLL %1

    If it doesn't,right click (Default) and select Modify.
    paste the above value in and click OK.

    You may need to reboot for changes to take effect.

    Thanks Reverend, it's a little different - do I need to change it?

    If you left click once on the "command" folder,what string do you see in the right hand pane?

    Is the "open with" option missing from all files or only certain extensions.
