Icons in My Documents folder

Moving folders vis Flash Drive from my old XP to new Windows 7 Desktop. Noticed the icons in the My Documents folder (.PDF, Power Point, Word Doc) are not showing up. Any idea where to go to get icons to show up?

Do you have Adobe or Foxit installed for PDF?
Do you have Office installed?

Go into Control Panel, Default Programs.
Click on Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
Scroll down to .pdf, select it and see what program is associated with it. If wrong, click the Change Program butto and point to your PDF viewer.
Ditto for power point and word documents.
