just a little niggle,but when i add an item to my IE6 favorites menu i get a custom icon from the site i have added.

after i reboot or restart the custom icon is gone and i am left with the standard windows icon, is there some way to retain the custom icon?

Thanks,

Flak...

These are known as favicons.ico (Favorite Icons) and they
normally will only last until your Internet Explorer Temp files are cleared.

This program will allow you to save the favicons.ico (Favorite Icons)
permanently in a different folder and re-associate your favorites with the
stored icons.

Create a new sub-folder within Favourites or Temp Internet Files called Favicons and copy the favicons files to that folder so they're always kept. Do not empty this new folder!

I have had the same experience, but does it really matter? As long as the favourites link connects me to the site that is all I require.

nope doesn't matter at all really, but some of the icons are quite detailed and they help me go to the correct link quickly without having to scan through a large menu.

Cheers
