IE icon just creates new IE shortcuts

On my Windows XP SP2 computer, when I double-click on the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop, it just creates a new shortcut to IE, rather than opening up IE.  I tried removing the shortcut and re-adding it, but I'm still having the problem.

Any ideas how to fix it?

Thanks,
Sarah

Hello,

Right click that icon on your desktop, and delete it.  Drag a new copy to your desktop from the start menu or quick launch bar.

This should resolve the problem.

Regards,

Rob
