Internet Explorer has disappeared from my Start Menu on Windows XP

Internet Explorer has disappeared from my Start Menu. I know it's still "somewhere" because some apps still manage to launch it.

"You could make a shortcut from C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe, however if you're referring to the default Internet shortcut at the top of the default start menu ( not the classic start menu ), there is an easier way to restore that.

By default start menu I mean this one (disregard the classic theme):

As you can see, there is the default browser and default email client at the top. Internet Explorer will be in place of Firefox for you.

Right click the taskbar and select Properties
Go to the Start Menu tab and click Customize (for the regular start menu, not classic)
At the bottom under show on start menu check the internet checkbox and select Internet Explorer as the browser:

Hit OK on each window."
