minor but annoying problem with Microsoft office

i have office 2007 installed and everything works fine, however if i pin the programs to the taskbar or open a program from anywhere other than the folder its in i cant see the icon. I tried to change the installation setup but when i click change from the control panel it says setup could not find any products to install but they there and run fine. Any suggestions?

In the pic the icons with no pictures are word, a word document on the desktop and powerpoint. they work but the icons dissappeared. I have also attached a picture of the office folder where the icon pics are there.
