Another option is to do a system restore using a restore point dated when it was in the New context menu to hopefully sort it for you.

That would've been prior to the clean Windows 7 install that I did in early October so, unfortunately, there is no restore point like that.

In that case WebPixie, let's see if the .reg file below may sort this for you. It'll restore the default registry entry for .doc files for the "New" context menu.

You'll just need to download it to your desktop, double click on it to merge it, then approve all prompts.
