How did you reinstall your icons? I tried everything but nothing worked. I had to either reinstall Office and Acrobat or restore an image.

I just downloaded them again (from virtualcustoms) and installed again. Before that i did use the uninstaller and the cleanup files that is included with the icon installer

I gathered from this post that you had the same problem as me
Anyway..I'll have to try using a default theme, installing the updates then switching back to my custom theme and see what happens.

UPDATE: It doesn't matter which update I install, during the update process my icons turn into "unknown" icons. I've decided that I won't be installing any Windows Updates and Ill just hope that a fix comes out before or soon after SP1.

well losing icons in this thread is your office icon right. if it comes from custom icon,it can be reinstall again. but this one is the office icon itself. i was trying to suggest reloading icon cache but you already tried it and it didn't works right? when you right click>properties on the icon. Does it shows the right icon? i mean in the properties window

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
 
 

For this very reason -- and similar -- I am, and have been, installing updates on a discretionary and ad-hoc basis. I will say again that i think it's best to read the accompanying update info (left-hand side) and decide then whether the update is absolutely necessary (optional, recommended or mandatory -- and they are rarely the latter IMHO).

Now it's gone beyond strange. During the installation of Photoshop CS4 the icons changed! All Office icons, PDFs and Windows Mobile Center. This is a clean install from only 2 days ago and no Windows Updates have been installed. WTF!!
