Some months ago we upgraded our MS Office 2003 suites to MS Office 2007.  A number of our users have found the related extensions (docx, xlsx, etc) do not auto-launch and instead the user is prompted what program to open the file with.  Is this a known issue and is there a fix?  Users are running it on XP Pro.
