Forum Question: How Do I Remove Items From the Contextual Menu ?

Within the last 24hrs these 2 items ( 8.5.9 & 8.4.19 )have appeared in contextual menu > open with, however these 2 items only appear when I want to open .css files.
Normally .css files are set to open by default w/ text wrangler.
Also the default for opening .css files has been changed to open with an app I made over year ago ( with Fluid. I changed that w/ Get Info, but the problem still persist.
Here is a list of apps I have down loaded in the past 24hrs..
Adobe Reader (for Mac 10.1.2), Nisus Thesaurus, PopClip.
BTW does not appear in System Preferences>Keyboard>Keyboard Shortcuts>Services
Where I would normally uncheck these items.

    There’s no good way to edit the list of “open with” choices. There’s no place to uncheck them.
    According to some sites, you can use this Terminal command to clear them all and start again:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
    Though I can’t find any reference this working in Lion, only Snow Leopard or Leopard.
    Let us know if it works, if you decide to try it.
