You know, the explanation for these "I deleted the internet" support requests is that one version of Windows actually labeled the web browser icon "The Internet".

I generally don't cry wolf. This was just a one time thing to see what replies I would get from using the "I deleted the internet" story.

The replies I got show me how respectful the members are at linuxquestions.org and are willing to help even in the most simplistic cases. In most forums and IRC's, a person would have been ridiculed or ignored on such a simple fix.

Anyway, back to drinking coffee and using my cup holder on my computer.

PS: Maybe this thread may come in handy if someone did actually deleted an icon from their desktop and needed help to retrieving it or recreating it.
