Windows 7: Document Icons

Document Icons

I use Office 2010 Beta, and after "playing" with icons I got different icon for documents created with earlier versions (Word 2003, PowerPoint 2003). New icon looks like Windows shield with 4 colors. Any suggestions on how to fix this and restore previous look of earlier-version documents icons?
