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.

Yes this is a known issue, you need to download "FileFormatConverters" that will solve the problem for your users. It is also known as office 2007 7 converter.

Which metod you used to upgrade Office?
You need associate the extensions with Office 2007.
You can run offdiag.exe or import the registry entries to correct that.
