I wonder if you should have also crossposted this to:

microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general

for more effectiveness?

Re: IE 7 -Desktop shortcuts wont work
HI,
1. Is IE7 the default browser? Check that at Control Panel> Add or remove
programs> Set program access and defaults.

2. Start Internet Explorer without add-ons from:
Right-click the IE icon on the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
or
Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no add-ons)
If the problem goes away, you have an incompatible browser add-on installed.

For troubleshooting information see:
928426- Internet Explorer 7 may exit immediately when it includes an add-on
