I recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 7.0. I had several IE shortcuts on my Desktop that I had customized to help distinguish from other icons on my Desktop. IE 7.0 has changed them to a generic blue E on a sheet of paper. I've found a few posts on line that have directed me to NOT use Large Icons. If I change to standard Icons, my customized icon returns. Other posts have directed me to set the Properties of the custom icon to Read Only and I should be able t o go back to large icons. None of this is working for me. I am running WinXP and was going to deploy IE 7 out to about 70 people but they are visual and most like the large icon setting. MS Hotfix solution doesn't work for me either as neither does this previous postexchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_Vista/Q_23060905.html .
Any other ideas?
