It is possible to fix it, but the way is too difficult IMO ! It is Office Icons Change or Repair . You can try need4steer's post in the second page of that tutorial, but as I haven't tried it, not sure about how that trick works.

And, The easiest way to restore things is just to reinstall Office 2010 over the existing installation. It will bring all those deleted icons back.

At the same time, if you have a junk/registry cleaner other than Ccleaner, this problem may occur once again.

All of a sudden running programs that I have minimized no longer have an icon on the task bar so that I can open them up when needed. I have to go to the task manager to get to them. Not sure what I did but I can't seem to get them to display on the task bar again. Advice much appreciated.
