Has anyone else had this problem (drastically) more in ML than in previous version of OSX?

Seems to happen, at least once a day. Have to reset launchservices every time :(

Only 1 Apps folder, only 1 drive with apps on it, just in case anyone asks.

It happened to me once or twice. It was gone after a restart though.

As stated in the first post, that works but problem pops up again. Happens all the time.
