Have you checked the Recycle Bin to see if you can restore it from there?

Try this. Straight from 'XP Tips'.

Remove shortcut arrow from desktop icons

Here's how you can remove those shortcut arrows from your desktop icons in Windows XP.
Start regedit.
Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTlnkfile
Delete the IsShortcut registry value.
You may need to restart Windows XP.

In XP you can restore the icon by going to Display Properties-desktop-customise desktop-tick deskop icons Internet Explorer.

Leave it off the desktop - less clutter! You will have another one in your Quick Launch toolbar.
