Strange that VLC was not alone.
On my WinXP SP3, other entries are like this:

"C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\PowerDVD.exe" "%L"

C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QuickTimePlayer.exe "%1"

wmplayer (which is Windows Media Player 11)
C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe /Play "%L"

Should we report these bugs to Apple and Microsoft ? :)
