Not so fast Reed, this sounds like an issue with registering file types with Windows.

The icon you see on the desktop depends on what your default browser is. Which build is your default browser?
This can be caused by the icon being cached by the OS as well as by Bug 268512
note: Bug 268512 is actually a bug in the way MS Office doesn't check for changes to the DefaultIcon registry key after taking control of handling the icon. We try to workaround it in Bug 268512

tchung...want to call this invalid, or dupe to 268512?
