First, make sure you've rebooted after installation, as some programs don't show up at all until you do this. If you still can't find the program, you may not have installed it correctly, or it could have been a corrupt installation file. Try downloading it again (preferably from a different source) and pay close attention to the bit type. For instance, if you have a 32-bit operating system, you need the 32-bit installation file.

neon427, Open Windows Explorer and look into your C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer folder and right click on iexplore.exe, choose Send to>Desktop (create shortcut).
