Lost my IE icon, can't find program either.

Got my computer back from the repairman yesterday. New motherboard, new hard
drive. Pentium 4, 80 gig and 512 K running XP 64. Use AVG free, AdAware SE,
and Pest Patrol. Closed the internet page I was on, and my IE icon
disappeared from my quick launch tray, as did the one on the start menu and
the listing in all programs. Called the repair guy, he had never had this
happen to anyone else. Couldn't find it through search or anything else he
suggested. Not there in my computer, even though I have a IE folder, but no
blue E icon anywhere. I downloaded Mozilla which runs just fine. Tried
downloading IE7 again, and it says it downloaded, but still no icon anywhere.
Only place I can find the program listed is add/remove programs, but it will
only uninstall, does not repair. Would buying the $10 disk from Microsoft
make it work, or do you have any other suggestions?

Hi,
Go to Add/remove programs> Add/remove Windows components> put a check
by IE. OK your way out. Restart.

You may also have to go into "Add/remove programs> set program access &
defaults and make choices
regarding "Default" and "Enable access."

You may also have to go into Display properties> Desktop> Customize to check
IE under Desktop icons.

Hope this helps,

Hello,
The path to the program is:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

In Windows Explorer, right-click and select:
Send To\Desktop (create shortcut)
then rename the desktop shortcut as you see fit.

Hopefully, that will get you there. Good luck.

Thank you for replying. I am not very computer savvy, but I really think
this is weird. I copied and ran the "C:\Program Files\Internet
Explorer\iexplore.exe " and it took me to a choose settings for IE page,
which I did. Then it took me to a MSN page. I put that link on my desktop,
but I still can't find the blue E internet explorer icon. So at least I can
run it now, thanks to you, but I just can't figure out why I don't have the
icon.
