The IPython installer actually mentions this when it finishes
installing:

"Distribute (setuptools) is required to create Start Menu items.
Re-run this installer after installing distribute to get Start
Menu items."

You can grab the setup for distribute from:

     http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py

If your Python 3.3 installation is part of your PATH, you simply do:

     python3 distribute_setup.py install

When it's finished, run the IPython installer again and you'll find
it now creates a start menu shortcut for you.
