I recommend rebuilding the icon cache. I could write the instructions here, but it's an extremely common problem and a web search for "rebuild icon cache" will give you plenty of hits showing how to do it. Regards, Joe

> A window 7 window 7 ultimate.

I presume you mean Windows 7 Ultimate — right? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

> Icon from programs like outlook, word lost the Microsoft

Post a screenshot.

> Some programs (shortcuts to a program) disperse.

Do you mean "disappear"? If not, what exactly do you mean by "disperse"?

> it does not minimize or maxsmize with clicking on the icon

Which icon? on the taskbar? on the desktop? in the upper right of the program window? And which type of clicking — left or right?

Interesting that Excel and Access look good, but the others don't. Anyway, there are numerous ways to try to solve this. My first recommendation is a Repair installation of Office (not Windows). Do you know how to do that? If not, let me know and I'll send instructions.
