Q

How do I repair my Office 2000 shortcut icons?

I recently upgraded some of our workstations from Windows ME to Windows 2000 Professional. Everything works OK, but there is a problem with Office 2000. When I add a user to the local machine and open any of the Office modules, I am prompted to run Setup. So I ran Setup and the programs function OK. The problem is: The default icons have all been changed for Office. The shortcut icons on the Start menu are the default DOS icons, and all the files have the default Windows icon, (the one when Windows does not know with which program it is associated). How do I restore the icons?
In any of the Office 2000 programs, click Help, Detect and Repair. Select the option to repair your icons.
