I've installed Favorg at work on Windows 2000 under my login. When Favorg goes through the motions of finding favicons, it checkmarks as if it has found them but none update and the Favicon folder is empty. Any ideas?

Have you ticked the two boxes "Find Favicons" and Update redirected links ? Also not all sites produce Favicons, PC Advisor doesn't for example. To test try click here they do.

Should also have said, you have to wait until the site put's a cookie on your machine, so if your browser is set not to accept cookies it won't work, and I don't think it works with Firefox either, just IE.

Memory like a sieve, when you get a Favicon, do you know you can drag it to your desktop out of your favourites, it makes a nice shortcut for your favourite sites.

Thanks rawprawn.

It works at home on Windows XP - PC Advisor has an icon there.

Sites which I know has a favicon are not appearing.
