XP Pro SP2 The icon to start IE7 has gone missing. Its not on the desktop, taskbar, or quick start, It's not in the IE folder in "Program Files" and it is nowhere to be seen in "Windows". I have looked round the back of the computer and it hasn't fallen out, and it's not behind the sofa. I have tried reinstalling IE7 but it has not improved matters. I cannot use IE& at all. (I only use it for Microsoft updates that require it to be used, as opposed to my usual Firefox.) Does anyone have any ideas where it has gone? How can I get it back?
Thanks everyone for the advice. I did a search for iexplore.exe and the result was that the file was not present. I then searched the internet for information about the file. I was unnerved by the fact that a lot of pages stating that malware exists called iexplore.exe, and the presence of a file with this name was indicative of malware on the system. I used "Add or remove programs" to uninstall IE7 and all its updates. Using Firefox I downloaded another copy of IE7 from the Microsoft site. On installation the file was present and all is now well. Thanks for the help.
