Default Windows explorer dates to match Word dates

Due to renames and file moves etc. the date in explorer for a lot of
my word documents does not match the real date. e.g. for xyz.doc
windows explorer reports the date modified = 03/08/2005, date created
03/08/2005 and date accessed 16/10/2005.

The dates in word are Date created 09/03/2001 and date last saved =
09/03/2001.

The dates held within word are correct.

Is there a way to set the windows explorer dates "correctly" i.e. so
that explorer date modified = word date last saved and explorer
created = word created?

Thanks

John
