no internet explorer icon on desktop!

this might be very easy for somebody!
my sons new computer (xp, from tiny) dosnt have an internet explorer icon on the desktop

when we set it up it had lots of supanet, tiny etc net software, but as i networked it through blueyonder i didnt need to use there stuff to launch the net, so i deleted them all....

the intenet explorer browser launches through the quick key on his keyboard, i have tried searching in the programme files for the icon but can see it, it has other set up wizards etc but i dont want to compromise my current connection by installing them
it obviously must be there if the quick key button launches it, or isnt it that simple?
can anybody help me.....

Right click Desktop, Properties, Desktop tab.

Customize Desktop button, General tab, tick Internet Explorer.
