Adding the IE 7 Icon to the Desktop in Vista
Added 2/8/07

By default, the icon for the Internet Explorer 7 does not show up on the Vista desktop

To add it back in again, a registry edit is needed.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
"{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
You can download the reg file and then run it to do this automatically.
Then log off and back on again
