i have Windows 7 pro 32bit installed from scratch with a pak license. i installed office enterprise suite 2007 and immediately noticed that the icons didn't display. i couldn't reinstall or repair, and an uninstall broke office altogether. after much fussing andf no luck, i reinstalled the OS and the problem persists. seems ok at first, but then teh icons for the program apps & files began showing as the default "no file type" image again. i'm not positive, but i think it might be related to pinning the apps or app folder from the programs list to the start menu or taskbar.
anyway, i manually fixed the program icons with only mild annoyance, but the actual file icons are still broken. browsing a folder full to the brim with various office files is way painier in my butt when they don't have distinctive icons... =[
and its more than just office, i experience the same woes with roxio, itunes, & more.
any ideas anyone?
