    Right click on desktop, choose New and then choose Shortcut. Point it to
    the program file.

    BTW, a few more details would have been handy, such as your operating

    WinXP Service pack 2 Home Edition Ver. 2002
    Iexplorer.exe is 7.

    Where do I find iexplorer.exe?
    Can't find it using Find. It is there somewhere.

    By the way I am about as computer illiterate as your
    average cheese sandwich. I jest only a little!

    On my XP machine it's located at
    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
    You probably could just copy and paste the above line into the new
    shortcut's window.

    To get the real Icon back and not a shortcut; Right click on your
    desktop and select properties. Click on the Desktop tab, click on
    Customize Desktop, tick the Internet Explorer box.

    Go into add/remove programs, find Internet Explorer 7 and internet
    tools, highlight it, click add/remove, put the radio button *in* repair
    (make *very* sure it's there) and then click ok to repair. it will also
    put a shortcut for channels and IE on the taskbar if they're not there.

    Doesn't work. The "shortcut" for IE isn't a shortcut, it acts like the
    actual file. Try right clicking and then properties. You will get
    internet options *not* a short cut properties.
