    Recently my file icons for .docx and .doc file types changed to a blank sheet icon. I have selected open with→change all to no avail.

    - If I use the touch command to make a new .docx file the icon is normal, but if I open it with Word and save as to a new name the icon goes back to a blank sheet.
    - I reinstalled MS Office to no avail
    - When I create a new user, the icon is normal
    - I have trashed ~/Library/Preferences to no avail

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    I too have this issue and so it appears do many others. I followed a link that emptied my Library / Cache files and this fixed a few, but the problem still persists.

    I too would appreciate any help to resolve this.
