Corrupt installer databases are to blame. This appears to appen with Office and Adobe pdf products. The installer database contains your .ICO or icon files. Sometimes the icons also mysteriously disappear from the porgramfiles directory aswell. I have not found a solution as of yet and this continues to happen after fresh reformats. As for reinstall or repair sometimes these fail due to the currupt installer database as is the case for me.

actually, yesterday I realized what was wrong...CCleaner was deleting my installer folders, and the icons that were stored on them causing this issue. To fix it you just need to Format/reinstal the program(sometimes its easier to format cause without installer folder, it became hard to uninstall some programs like office), and don't use ccleaner or disable the option that delete de installer folder.

Sorry for my english =/

And thank you all for the help ^^

This happened to me too.
Actually C:\Windows\Installer contains the databases for installed programs and also contains .ICO files in it.
For MS WORD 2003 my Folder is C:\Windows\Installer\{90110409-60000-11D38CFE-0150048383C9} this folder has the file wordicon.exe for the icon.

The moron software CCleaner which i had too must have deleted this unnoticed.

The Solution only is to somehow repair or reinstall. (But due to missing files uninstall may giv problems, i think).
