Rebuild your LaunchServices database by entering the following command in the Terminal:

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

and then do a restart.

After doing this, you could also have Spotlight re-index your drive just to be sure. – Madison S Feb 5 '11 at 2:37

You'll lose some information though. At least file type associations (default applications) and which applications have been opened previously. – user495470 Aug 6 '11 at 12:52
