Missing Internet Explorer icon

By h_deshmukh ·
Hi,

I am using Windows XP Home Edition with SP2. I have installed Internet Explorer 7. After reboot Internet Explorer icon is missing from Start menu but the text "Internet Explorer" is present. I can open Internet Explorer by clicking on it.

How do I get Internet Explorer icon back in start menu?

Thanks

Hemant Deshmukh

Try This...

by anthonydamrow In reply to Didn't work

Go into the registry and look for the registry key...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\IEXPLORE.EXE\DefaultIcon

I'll bet yours looks as mine did and has...

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-7.

What it should be is...

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-32528

Reboot. Problem solved.

My Solution

by antfb In reply to Missing Internet Explorer ...

I just re-installed my machine and experienced this problem. I tried the above but the number in my case was -702. Changing it did not help. I backed up the key as a regfile and then deleted it. On rebooting the icon was there as it should be. The key was not re-created when I checked the registry again. I hope this helps.

Wrong reg key

by techrepublic In reply to My Solution

Hi,

I was browsing through the registry and I found the same key as you ending -702. This is the wrong key, if you go one level lower you will find the key ending on -7. When you change this one it does work.

Good luck.
