    kimsland: I added the newly created .Reg file on the Desktop and rebooted after adding to the registry and IE icon did not reappear.

    kimsland: Option 3 really for XP only?

    Option 4: see post # 16.

    So it's on to Option 5.

    I recovered my IE Desktop and Quick Launch icons by doing a system restore. Thanks for your support and assistance Bobbye and kimsland.

    Thanks you for the update Ned. I will put this in my "If Only" Folder:
    My Post #5:
    Your Post #6:
    (no System Restore)
    Your Post #19:
    The "if only" is the System Restore!
    But you have learned to do some new functions and that is always a good thing.
