There is a way , Office Icons Change or Repair , but I shouldn't suggest you this one , it is too laborious

If you reinstall MS Office over the existing installation , you will get your office icons back .

Now, what is most important is to retain the icons there . So , I'd suggest you to stop using your third party registry cleaners (like tuneup utilities) . Only one program that I can recommend you is CCleaner - Free version . It doesnot delete the installer folder (where these icons and uninstallers are stored) like the others.
