All Office Icons Missing

I have noticed recently that all the Office 2003 icons as well as Quicktime, Itunes, Adobe reader, etc; all of a sudden disappeared and were replaced with generic icons? If I am trying to start an Office program then I am getting the Windows Installer Screen, then the error message comes " An error occured and this feature is no longer functioning properly. Please run Setup and select "Repair..." to restore this application." When I click OK then the program compes up and functions properly, but if I am trying to run the Setup then I get this message " This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer Patch Package." Can anyone please help me out? Thanks

I dont think that repairing Office will do anyting on the data files, you should actually do a backup of the data which should be a wise decision.

If you used any of the Cloning programs to clone your boot disk to a new drive there is one folder you need to copy over manually after the cloning.

It is the C:\Windows\installer directory. It will not be visible unless you turn on view protected system files in Tools->Folder Options->View

Copy the whole directory over or else you will find that some of your icon types (particularly MS Office) will have disappeared and you cannot re-install / repair (because setup sees there is an installation but there is no installer files there so it crashes)

The Cloning option is what I did recently and mccarw's advice got my icons back on the air.
Office icons were the noticeable ones missing, but there were handfuls of others too.

Thanks!
