    what windows are you running. win98 & me internet explorer icon is atthe bottom of the screen just to the right of the start button. you can also go to start, programs & you'll find internet explorer, do a right click with mouse, send to,desktop(create shortcut) & you'll have internet explorer icon back on your desktop

    @Harpz

    click start -- SEARCH -- Files or Folders !

    On All Files and Folders -- CLICK

    Type in the window : iexplorer.exe and Click Search

    When you see it in the result window -- Right click the one that's in your Program Files folder and select
    Send To --> Desktop (create Shortcut)

    @ ddp - Icons such as my internet folders cum up buh dats it really. I reformat my pc because I had a lot of problems with it. There wasnt enough RAM and it kept constantly crashing and freezing, so I thought a fresh start would be best.

    @ Jeanc1 - I followed your instructions and it said search is complete and that no files were found. Some reason I'm starting to fink that maybe I've deleted the icon.

    ~~If you search and have not found iexplore.exe --- you dont have Internet Explorer on your PC -- that's probably why you dont see your icon !


    That is weird cause you are in this forum !
