Office 2007 program and file icons are generic. However, associations still work. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Windows 7. This occurs in Explorer and Start menu.

    I have have tried:

    *  creating a new user account. No change when viewed in new account.

    * Clicked "change" when Office 2007 selected in Programs control panel to try to repair. Nothing happens.

    * Rebuilt icon database multiple times. No change.

    The second list item suggests a problem with the installer. Any suggestions?

  • Hi,

    I suggest reinstall the Office program to check the result.

    You can refer to the following KB:

    Meanwhile, you can post this issue in Microsoft Office for further discussion.

    Hope this helps
