"Default Programs" icons out of whack RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

     

    What the heck is going on here?

     

    This morning I installed MS Office 2007 Ultimate (using a custom install, so that several apps are installed on first opening, and Visio Viewer is not installed). Until now I had been looking at DOCs with WordPad, so I opened the change default programs window, and went to "Associate a File Type with a Specific Program." Then I clicked DOC and then "Other Programs," to find Word from the list. Here's what I got:

     

    - Instead of MS Office 2007 Picture Manager, I had some kind of system check icon (yellow triangle w/ exclamation point on a monitor, and a green checkmark)

    - Instead of Windows Calendar's icon, I had some kind of picture manager icon -- maybe for Media Center.

    - Instead of Media Center's icon, I had MS Word 2007's

    - Instead of Word's icon, I had a power manager battery icon

    - Instead of MS Paint's, I had Back Up & Restore's icon

     

    There was another icon below the scroll, but I couldn't reproduce it after I changed the doc type to Word, so I don't know what it was.

     

    Incidentally, I wanted to upload a small JPG, but can't figure out how. Annoying, if understandable.

     

    I'm not concerned, since it no longer appears to be happening, but it was worth reporting.

     

    a.k.a.
