    All of the Office 2007 icons changed from the default to a "blank" icon.
    I can launch all applications and if I recreate the icon it is fine, but all
    the icons on the start menu are affected for all users.

    It is a Windows 7 machine running Office 2007 Professional.

    What could have caused this and how can it be corrected?

    Hi there, I'm having the same problem. Every app works, fine, the files
    associations are right, but the icons of the documents (Word, Excel,
    PowerPoint, etc) aren't the one of the associated app.

    Has anyone got an answer to this issue?

    In my case it was caused by an upgrade to an application called ACT! The only
    way I could get the icons back was to restore the computer to the state it
    was in before the upgrade.

    Check out this blog:
    http://blog.gnu-designs.com/solved-missing-microsoft-office-2007-shortcut-icons

    This restored some, but not all of the icons. Also with Windows 7 I did not
    have the luxury of going into Folder Options >File Types so I compared the
    files on this machine to a like machine.
    Since no one was using the workstation at the time, the system restore was
    the best option to get back all of the Office icons.

    Hope this helps, sorry for the late reply.
