Does anyone know how to get rid of wordicon.exe. It has taken over some of my Microsoft Word files which renders them useless. If I go to Open With to try to change the file back to Word, Word has disappeared with Wordicon its place. On Google some say it is part of Microsoft Office, others that it's a virus. Whichever it is can someone please tell me how to delete it.

Perhaps try renaming the exe?
Open with and tick always use the program you want to use.

Thanks for the idea 'Open with and tick always use the program you want to use' But no luck I'm afraid, the tick box is blanked out.

Try this...

Open a folder then click on tools.. folder options.. file types. Then select the ".doc" under extensions and change it to Word.
Hope this makes sense.
