New machine setup, It had office 2010 trial on it which was removed and office 2003 installed but office documents were not opening until I made an association. The association is made and opening the documents but the icons for word excel etc are not worrect usually a blue "W" with a white back ground.
The system is windows 7 so tweak ui does not appear to work

Uninstall Office 2003.
Download and install both CCleaner www.ccleaner.com and Cleanup http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=15&Itemid=69
Reboot.
Run Cleanup, reboot.
Run CCleaner, both its cleanup and registry cleaning functions, reboot.
Then reinstall Office 2003.

You can try running Cleanup and CCleaner without the uninstall of Office 2003, but it may not pick up the correct icon associations.  Uninstalling Office 2003 first, then cleaning it out, will allow it to correctly set up the icon associations.

Hope that helps.
