    The shortcut (icon) for Internet Explorer somehow dissapeared from my desktop. How do I get it back?

    CanAm, Which XP SP is installed and which version of Internet Explorer?

    Did you try this:

    Right click on any open area of the Desktop
    Click [Properties], select the [Desktop] tab, then click [Customize Desktop] button
    Select the [General] tab
    In the [Desktop Icons] section place a checkmark next to Internet Explorer
