When I need to open Internet Explorer on my Windows XP, I have to go through "My Computer" to find it. Why can't I get the normal IE icon on my desktop? Also, when I do access it through "My Computer" there is no address bar even though under Tools, the address bar has a check next to it. Any help would be appreciated.

A few things to try......

Go to My Computer\C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer and right click the Iexplore.exe file.....click "create shortcut" then drag and drop the shortcut to the desktop.

Double-click the shortcut to open up a page in Internet Explorer .......Now go to the Toolbar that you do have and right click it....untick "lock the toolbars" if ticked.

Move the cursor to the bottom edge of the toolbar (until it turns into the cursor with 2 lines) then grab the line and pull it down.

Once you have the toolbars as you want them....right click them and lock them again
