%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

The User Pinned folder may be hidden.

I have a script to pin and unpin icons from the taskbar and Start Menu if you need it.  It can also clear the "recently used" icons from the start menu if you need to do that as well.

WalkaboutTiggerCommented:
%APPDATA% is an environment variable which usually points to

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming
where USERNAME is the name of the user you're looking at to add/change/delete these pinned items.

If you start CMD.EXE and type SET APPDATA and press Enter you can see what the value is set to.
