Missing IE7 Start Menu icon

After installing Internet Explorer 7, its Start Menu icon in Windows XP changed to a generic program icon. Did some quick research and found the answer here.

Go to HLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\IEXPLORE.EXE\DefaultIcon

The value is probably this:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-7.

Change it to this:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-32528

Restart the PC. As with all registry edits, back up first and YMMV.
