Gewb: As I have stated, for this user account the file extensions do not show up in the control panel, possibly due to some registry error, so sadly I cannot do that tutorial, as I have tried to goto control panel before.

Imperfect, thanks I try to make my main user acc desktop looking nice, I have compiled all the sample pics+country theme pics (Us, Au, Uk, etc) from vista and 7, as well as some from vikitech, I always get a new refreshing picture now. The icons can be found on wincustomize from authors such as mormegil or Dr. Arnaez in "themes" such as 2808 cryo64 or icon a day, so you can just goto misc icons for them

Sorry, my bad. Log in as administrator and change the user account priviledges then try again. Not sure what else to suggest.

well control panel itself is working fine, and while as admin I can access files stored on that user perfectly, its just when on that user the .pub and .docx dont work or register in control panel as shown in the second screenshot,

Pardon? I have never heard of that program before sorry, I'm not sure if you are asking if a game is trying to open the .pub or .docx files, but in that case, no

You try rebuilding the icon cache:

thanks but that is only half the problem atm, if you look in the second screenshot there also is the issue of the default opening program for the .pub and .docx files, and those two extensions don't appear in the control panel for changing default programs, though it is only affecting that user account

Sorry but the guide doesn't work, I've already tried that procedure before, basically the check box for changing default programs is greyed out, second on default it wont open, and in control panel the extension is missing:
