grey crosses on document icons?

  atr48 15:00 12 Oct 2013

I now have grey crosses on my document icons (word/XL/adobe) and the adobe docs sometimes won't open. I have no idea how this happened.

I am running Vista Home Premium 2007 SP2.

Please advise how I can cure this problem - thanks...

The usual cause of this problem is a change in the file attributes - the default applications for opening the documents has been changed.
