Hi, I am having a problem with IE 7.  I use Windows XP Pro s/p 3.  I just downloaded it again in hopes it would put an icon on my desktop but it didnt.  The program works because when I go to Start and select Windows update, it uses Internet Explorer to log me in.  When I checked the add/remove file it shows it is installed and when I go to the Programs folder I see it there too but dont see the IE icon in any of the folders nor does it show up under Start menu/Accessories/Systems Tools.  All I need is a shortcut icon so that I can open it.  My default browser is Firefox.  Can someone help me with this please? Thanks.
