Well there have been four XP pc’s that I’ve upgraded that the Internet Explorer Icon goes missing. I’m not sure what causes this because I’ve seen this happen to a fresh install. NOTE – This is only happens after upgrading to version 7. To fix the Icon missing you must follow these steps:
- Go to START – Run
- type “regedit”
If your icon is missing the default icon properties will look like this:
- C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-7.
What it should be is…
- C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-32528
Reboot. Your icon will now be back.
