Microsoft Office icons on Vista

Howdy,

I was wondering how I could change the icon that a .doc document has? It kind of changed by itself while I stopped using MS Office and turned to OpenOffice. But a few days ago I went back to MS Office again. And everytime I make a new .doc document (not .docx), a completely new icon is used.

Here's what it looked like: http://www.mistric.net/icon2.jpg

And here's what it looks like now: http://www.mistric.net/icon1.jpg

Keep in mind that the first picture is a .docx file, but it doesn't matter because .doc still used to look like that before.

Any ideas on what I could do?

You may have to rebuild the icon cache. Since this is Vista, read this.

Thanks for the link by the way. Just tested it, but didn't quite work how I expected. So I'm gonna do it again, but reboot my computer instead.
