Windows 7: MS Office 2010 default file associations missing

MS Office 2010 default file associations missing

Running Windows 7 64bit Pro with Office 2010 32bit. It's a new computer and when transferring office documents from one user to another the file associations are missing. You can't open up office documents on the new computer unless you manually associate it. This occurs with all user profiles on the computer except for the local administrator account. Is there a registry fix to run to associate all office extensions to default. It's not a big deal to manually do this but users can't save to sharepoint as it just creates a temp file. Thanks for any help.

Fix for Office 2010 beta file associations
Note: After installing the latest security updates on two Windows 7 machines the file associations for Office 2010 beta reverted back to Office 2003 (which is also installed). In order to fix this (since I prefer that the Office 2010 apps be the default) I ran the "change/repair" option from...
