Generic IE desktop icons.

Many times when you add a website shortcut to your Desktop the specific icon will revert to a generic Windows Explorer icon.
Any ideas on how to overcome this? I have Windows XP Home edition and IE 6.0.

This used to be free but now you have to register. If you don't want to do that, send me a message by clicking on the envelope next to my name and I'll e-mail a copy.

P.S. I'm not sure if it works with desktop icons.

Just checked by creating a Desktop shortcut, rebooted and it retained the icon.
