Cant launch IE8 after reinstallation

I lost the ability to launch IE8 using a shortcut and therefore reinstalled it.I have done a series of removing and reinstalling this beast but now need to turn to your expertise for guidance.There are no short cuts,I cant find IE8 on Start-programs and yet it can be uninstalled using revo.I can live without this browser but other software applications rely on it.Do youm have any ideas?

Use Windows key+R to open Run box - and type in


then click OK - does IE8 open then?

If so then you can create your own desktop shortcut icon

Create a shortcut on the desktop with the following path. Right click on the desktop, select New then Shortcut.

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
