Windows 7 Professional x64
Infamous IconCache.db issue/Blank Office 2010 Icons
Ironically, I just found the solution that fixed my problem! I will share it, so anyone else having this problem can resolve it just as easily.
Start Menu > Type "winword /r" into the Search Bar > Press Enter, and allow the installation wizard to complete. Done! Problem solved!
I have scoured the internet for the past week, trying to find a solution. I have tried every solution through Google, including Brink's IconCache reset. Nothing has resulted in a solution.
I am at my wit's end. I have tried the system restore, deleting the IconCache.db (and rebooting), resetting the default program settings, trying to repair it (nothing happens, starts up and just closes) changing this and that, and nothing has worked.
I see the icons in the /ProgramFiles(x64), but nothing in the regular program files. This issue happened out of nowhere. The unfortunate part is we do not have the disc in order to re-install the programs (Microsoft Office Standard 2010), because as this is a work computer only the corporate office has discs and we're on our own with this problem.
I would really appreciate some help. Feeling frustrated with this whole issue, and I'm hoping I can get a working solution.
I attached some images below. Hope they can help figure this out. Thank you.
PS. The only reason one of those icons has a working icon is because I changed the icon through properties, but it didn't do anything else to the other file types. I really don't want to go in manually and change the icon for all the documents, when it should default to its appropriate icon.
PPS. We are using Windows 7 Professional x64.
PPPS. I am able to open and run the programs just fine, with no issues. The only real dilemma are the icons. :\[/strike]
