I assume you have tried this:-
Click Start
click All Programs
look for and click Internet Explorer. (near the top of the list)
If there you can also right click on it and click Pin to Taskbar in the pop up menu

If it is not there click the folder on your bottom task bar near the Start button to bring up Windows Explorer
click the plus sign beside the C: drive on the left side
in the menu dropped down below click the plus sign beside Program Files
click on Internet Explorer to highlight it
now look on the right side and right click on iexplore and in the pop up menu click to pin to Taskbar.
Done.

I'm sorry I am a little lost here. What are you referring to as "All I have is Google..........."? How do you have Google with no browser?

RE: I lost my Windows Internet Explorer

Did you reboot your computer? That would be the first place to start.

I am wondering also what you mean by google? Do you mean Chrome browser by google?

Give us more information

I rebooted the computer, I have a google toolbar. I right clicked on the desktop, chose new, typed Internet Explorer
then it wanted me to browse for the target of the shortcut. So that didn't work.

arosegirl-
It's very unlikely that it disappeared from your computer. Just go to "Start," "All Programs," and see if it is listed on your computer. If it is, right-click on it and choose "Send to...Desktop," which will give you a shortcut icon. Then report back.

If it's not listed, report back and we'll give you more tips.
