This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Open Terminal and type the following

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Then restart or log out and log back in, this should fix the problem.
