Just got the exact same problem, I think it was TuneUp Utilities that erased it.

Does anyone have the folder for Office 2010 Beta?
Also, what is the name for the Acrobat 9 icons? The name of the folder was mentioned a few msgs back, but I'd love the exact name of the folders

I don't understand. This is solved and if you have the same problem then why did this not fix it? Am I missing something?

Hi
I am still having this problem - I'm using Windows 7 and Office 2010.

Like the OP, I think my problem may have started when I tried to fix the ownership of all the files (it seemed odd that as the only user + an administrator I still didn't have permissions unless I explicitly set it).

I tried extracting the office2007 folder you linked on the previous page, but that did not restore my icons. Is it because I'm using Office 2010? Or is there something else I need?

Interestingly, the 'pdf' icons that were missing were restoring by using Adobe's 'repair installation'. I can't find any such thing for Office 2010.

I'd really appreciate your help on this. I've been reading dozens of pages this afternoon on forums from people having this same problem but nothing has fixed it yet (except for the Adobe PDF fix).

Cheers

Hi Mate,

I ran into this problem recently which has led me to land on this page. Before trying any of the steps mentioned in this thread, I simply tried to re-install Microsoft Office 2010.

When I inserted the DVD Installer Media, I was prompted whether I'd like to uninstall, add/remove features, repair and another option which I can't remember right now.

I chose repair and the icons are now back. Hope this helps you mate.

Hmm thanks for that.. but first to my story...
i have the same problem, well kind of... all the app icons for office 2010 RTM on Windows 7 Professional (same OS same Office!) are working perfectly. However the file extension icons (doc, docx, ppt, xls, xlsx etc) have the wrong icons. they can open and stuff but the icons are wrong.
I guess ive repaired it from control panel, and it made it worse because all the file types that i manually set (but are wrong) using filetypesman, were resetted back to a blank white page with the office app icon in the middle (kind of like a html file with the firefox/chrome logo in the middle) Which is what the original wrong icons looked like.

Some exceptions
The docx file is the right icon, but i noticed the description says DOCX file, it should say Microsoft Word Document or something...
same for all the other files, except they have the wrong icons i listed above

Ill shall try to repair from the disk, though im not optimistic. Could someone post the icons from the installer folder or something???


EDIT: there is much more than this. before all my applications for office 2010 were saying preparing to install, but i fixed it for everything except for access (i don't use it much though) so perhaps the whole installation was bad. Also I had office 2007 enterprise previously, probably left traces, tried to remove them, went into registry gave permissions to file extenstions in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, etc... While i uninstalled office 2007 I had to use openoffice 3.2.1, so that may have stuffed up the icons as well.
