There are a few ways of restoring the Outlook Express icon on your desktop.
After a long process of cleaning up after a virus, my Outlook Express icon is missing from my desktop. All the other icons are there. Would running System Recovery Console again restore the OE icon? If not, what could I do to restore this icon?
Off the top of my head, I can come up with at least three approaches to try.
One, simply right click on the desktop, Select New, Shortcut, and then browse to locate Outlook Express's .exe file. THAT's not obvious, but it's msimn.exe (form Microsoft Internet Mail and News - Outlook Express's old name), and is most likely in C:\program files\outlook express.
Another approach is to run System File Checker, which may well restore it.
Yet another approach would be to reinstall/repair Internet Explorer, of which Outlook Express is a part of it.
My approach would be the fist recreating the link manually.
