Windows 7: Microsoft office 2010 icons missing

Windows 7 Ultimate
Microsoft office 2010 icons missing

Hey guys, This is my first post so if i screw up let me know... this has happened now several times... The first time was when i downloaded my webcam driver from Microsoft, i have a Microsoft VX-3000. BTW i am using Windows 7 ultimate 64bit. I solved it by getting angry backing up and reformatting.

I should explain myself a bit, I am using the Office 2010 Official Beta that i downloaded from the microsoft website.

When I install My webcam driver (this happened again the second time when i install Wizards of the Coast Character Builder) Many of my icons disappear.

Adobe Reader, Skype, Steam, windows live messenger, All my office icons and iTunes

Now normally i just go into Add/Remove and just repair the program and the Icons come back, but for office, they are not... First off when i repair it says the repair failed, when i try to remove or add/remove option, i get the same thing... I was told this is because i am missing the office folder in C:/windows/installer/

Now i have tried one reformating and repairing... it work... but now it won't work... 3rd time it has happened.

I am at the point were system reformat seems like my only option left... what do you guys think, what can i do, i was thinking of installing it on a new harddrive and copying the installer folder and just bringing it back to this harddrive.

btw this is what i get as missing icons (attachement)

If any of you know whats up help you be greatly appreciated

Your icons are most likely missing because they were stored in:


If a software deletes these folders icons will be missing.

See my posts in:

I added a ZIP file with the Icons for Office 2007 in the above Thread.
