my sons computer hasnt got the ie7 icon on his desktop, he uses a hot key on the keyboard which sticks back and forh and is driving me crazy

ive not got one in my start menu, ive searched the computer for fils and shortcuts to it but theres dosnt sem to be anything in the ie7 programme folder

it was a Tiny computer that came loaded with a lot of wanadoo and supanet iocns that when you clicked them it tried to make you sign up with them so i uninstalled them

any ideas how i get an icon on the desktop?
before the button sticks for good!

. . . and the shortcut to IE is usually up near the top of the list. RIGHT click it and hold and drag to the desktop. Release and select "Create Shortcut Here"

This do you ?

Vista or XP?

If XP, right click on your desktop, choose properties, on the Desktop tab click "Customise Desktop" and make sure there's a tick by Internet Explorer.
