SharePoint 2007 - Windows 7 users - Randomly Openning files in Internet Explorer

Recently, we are experiencing that some of our windows 7 users open MS Office files, the files opens in IE instead of openning in excel, word or InfoPath. This issue has been seen only in windows 7 operation system. We are curious if anyone has seen this issue or any tips to troubleshoot this problem.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.12, value is "BrowserFlags".....
