Folks,
Here's my problem. I have empty icons for Office 2010, except for Visio and Project from the Programs menu.
I downloaded and installed FixIt from Microsoft that deleted Office 2010. I then re-installed Office and rebooted the laptop.
I've checked for malware and viruses. Clean. I deleted the  Iconcache database and rebooted again.
I can go the Office14 folder under Microsoft and Programs and can launch from there.  I can create a short-cut to the task bar from Windows Explorer and the programs run from there.
So the questions is why not from Start-Programs-Microsoft Office?

Maybe got to the start menu. Right click eg PowerPoint and remove from list
Then in The office 14 folder in all programs right click PowerPoint > Pin to start menu.

same for other progs if it works.

Thanks for the tip. I am finding out that my hard drive on my laptop appears to be failing. Nothing is really running correctly. I have a good back up so I'll wipe the drive and rebuild.
