Office 2010 icons changed to default EXE icon

All my Office 2010 icons changed suddenly, and I cant repair or uninstall the aplication. When I try to uninstal, setup program gives a message saying that couldnt uninstall Office.The programs are still working normaly but the ugly visual annoys me.

Ideas ?

Icon Cache - Rebuild
OR/AND

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If neither works please post a snip of the icons so we can see them.

Ok, I can't see your picture, use the paper clip icon to attach it after you capture it with the Snip Tool.
did the scan say No violations found?
