Rebuild the services menu without logging out
Authored by: Daniel Buus on Dec 04, '12 04:48:07AM
With my installation (Lion), you can trigger the rebuild without creating any new app like this. For me, it's a terminal command like this:

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

Adding it as an alias in .bashrc (syntax: alias rebuild-services='all that long line goes here') makes it easier to remember. The tip I used had a different path to the "lsregister" binary, so I had to do sudo find / -xdev -name 'lsregister' to find it :)
