    Disapearing icon?
    « on: August 22, 2009, 05:34:55 PM »
    My computer keeps telling me that my hardrive is full and so i was trying to clear some sapce and i saw a button that said it would get rid of all of the stuff i don't use  but i think i got a bit confused with the ticked boxes and now my internet explorer icon has gone from my desktop and start menu and programs menu how do i get it back
    now the only way i can get online is through a web page that i've already saved

      cant you just start it from the start menu?
      also make sure to have atleast 1mb on your windows drive or you will
      not be able to boot properly

      The OP stated that their internet explorer is gone from the start menu so not they cant' start it from there. Also you need at least 15% of your hard drive for windows to operate properly so please stop with this 1mb stuff.

      Lyoncub,

      Right click on the start button and then click on properties.
      Then click the customize button.
      Now you should see a section for "Show on start menu" there should be a box for internet make sure there is a check in that box.

        Usually you can find the Internet Explorer at this directory:
        C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer, if not just click on Start --> Run, write iexplore and press Enter.
        If Internet Explorer starts, just browse you PC and search for it with word iexplore.

        Cheers.
