My icon for IE no longer works or connects me to internet. The google chrome icon does as does firefox. Just seemed to stop working overnight. I normally use IE and had all my favourites listed. I suspect my lad has been tinkering trying to convert me to Google Chrome.
Tried a restore point but it only gave me yesterday as a date.

Any clues how i might get it back working

Which version of Windows?

Try going to the start menu - run, type in iexplore and see if it will run that way.

Microsoft Edge (on Windows 10) which has an icon similar to IE has a habit of going south.

IE is a pain in the arse in my opinion. Chrome or Firefox are far better.

If you decide to make the switch you can find all your IE favourites at C:/Users/[Your name]/Favourites. This is Windows 10, but you'll find them in the same place in earlier versions.

Or if it exists, right-click it, choose send-to, choose desktop. this will place a shortcut to it on your desktop.
