The registry entry exists in:
HKeyClassesRoot->CLSID
Find the entry starting with {00021400-
Go down to the shellex entry and left click the + sign
Look at the ExtShellFolderViews and highlight the entry under that

In the right window, you will see an entry for PersistMoniker.
The data should be: file://%userappdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop.htt

It's a bug in XP. I had it once. Go to http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

#15 Remove common tasks from the desktop

To use the Regedits: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.
