Recently I deleted some folders from *C:\Windows* directory with file names like this:
$some_name_Uninstall$, which are the files of the patches, which were installed on the OS.
It seems like my office placed the icons in some of those folders and now all xls and doc files have no icon. (I mean no Office icon)
I couldn't find a solution for this till now.
Please advice if someone had such problem and/or knows the solution.
p.s. I have 7 years experience with Windows XP, so please don't ask me to do simple things like associate with files again or something like that. I tried a lot of things. Uninstall and install is not a way out.
Thanks for any information!
