    I tried that, including a search of the OS. No luck.

    First check in this folder: C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch. If its there then copy it to
    C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    If not I found this on some forum, i forget where

    1. Right-click on the quick launch toolbar, but not on an icon
    2. Select Open Folder from the context menu. It'll take you to the quick launch folder which should live:

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    3. Right-click in a blank area of this folder
    4. Select New and then Shortcut from the context menu
    5. For the location textbox, input the following:

    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe dwmapi #105

    6. Click the Next button
    7. Name it. (Flip3D, for example)
    8. Click Finish

    The shortcut will now be in your quick launch toolbar.

    Then right-click on the shortcut, and change the icon graphics..look in this location: C:\Windows\system32\imageres.dll
