    Internet Explorer Icon Disappeared

    Hi,

    i have just re-installed one of my PC's to get ready for a new image... finished it off, then logged on as a student to test it... The IE7 icon on the desktop has dissapeared... logged onto another one with the old image and its still there...

    its deployed via a single profile for all the students...

    i read it could be to do with an update for IE7 (as this is as uptodate as i can get it...)

    any ideas?

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. You can use IE GPOs to place IE on the desktop or alternatively create a shortcut and place on the desktop using Folder Redirection.

    Have you applied SP3 to the new image, or a recent IE7 hotfix? Apparently this nobbles the icon...

    You'll have to do it by redirecting the desktop to a location on the server and putting the icon in there.

    You can do it that way Domino, but even easier:

    User Config > Admin Templates > Desktop

    Hide Internet Explorer icon on desktop - Disabled
