Have you tried system restore?

Which icon. Quick launch, desktop or both. Also is it in your start menu?

You could try removing it from 'Add or remove programs' in Control Panel.

You could try opening Windows Explorer, go to Programme files >Internet Eplorer > find the file Iexplore.exe. Right click on this file, select'Send To',from the menu, select 'Desktop(create shortcut)'and left click on this.
If you want to put the shortcut in the Quick launch toolbar drag this shortcut to the toolbar.

In Windows Explorer navigate to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer

Right click on IEXPLORE.EXE and select Copy.

Go to desktop, right click and select Paste Shortcut.
