You aren't the only one to do that.. I was deleted my shortcut some times ago.

I looked at properites for mine shortcut (in taskbar) and the adress is C:\Documents and Settings\domagoj\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch (that is if you have Windows XP).

Hope this helps. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Take notice of teh bold text in adress (that is different for every use I guess, that is the name of the user on the specific PC -- in this case my name).

Sorry, I see that this don't help much, since I deleted that shortcut from taskbar (experimentally, to see what happens) and by some miracle program was dissapeared from it's folder.

Point is that icon in taskbar isn't shortcut, but program itself. Since it is program that have it's location within "Internet Explorer" folder (in "documents and settings" folder on system disk, I presume that by reinstalling internet explorer you might solve the problem.. but I'm unsure of that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
