IE icon missing in tray on left - (XP IE7 Sony Viao)
It was there and now it's not! I am sure I must have done something but I have no idea what it might have been. I can use the shortcut on my desktop - but that's awkward at times. Thoughts? Instructions to correct? I haven't been able to locate anything - hoping it's a super simple fix and I am just missing the obvious somehow/somewhere.

Right click on the taskbar at the bottom. Under the "toolbars" item, be sure the "quicklaunch" toolbar is checked. That will restore the shortcut to the taskbar. If your quicklaunch toolbar is checked and no IE icon is there, just drag the shortcut from your desktop to the taskbar and it will be there for you.

go to control panel from start menu and then go to programs and features. under programs and features look for windows IE 8. and click on that and uninstall.
or other wise if you don't see it there click on show all installed updates on top left corner. then under installed update lists fine windows IE 8. and uninstall them all. it will prompt to restart coimputer. restart computer you will get windows IE 7.
this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.
problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website

I had the same problem. I had IE7 and installed IE8. IE8 caused a lot of problems, so I used system restore. I was back to IE7 but it was not functioning properly. I had to downgrade to IE6 and then reinstall IE7. Its all back to normal. What a pain
It sounds as though the IE7 application may be corrupted. Try removing IE7.
To Remove IE7: Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Select Internet Explorer 7 > Select Remove. IE is a core component of XP. Hence, your machine will revert to IE6. Reboot pc. If you like IE7, visit Microsoft and download a fresh copy.
