Windows 7: Microsoft file assoc. icons

13 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Microsoft file assoc. icons

Looking around all the forums there appears to be many problems with missing office/word icons using Windows 7. I have uninstalled & reinstalled Office 2010 several times. Re built the icon cache, renamed database to old, etc. etc. etc. I certainly am not looking forward to a clean install of Ultimate! The attachment shows icons appearing on the file associations under Default Programs. Also C:/Windows/Installer does not appear in listing nor with search???

Solved by uninstalling for 3rd time using Microsoft Mr Fixit uninstaller. Used cCleaner to cleanup left over reg files. Used Microsoft windows installer cleanup tool, Re booted, re installed Office 2010..............and all is back to Normal for the time being!
