Where have my Favorites icons gone?

This isn't a major problem but one that has me intrigued.

Until yesterday I had a few fancy icons in my favorites folder from saved websites, but today I have noticed that all apart from one (Belarc) have changed to the rather boring Internet Explorer icon.

As I said, not a major problem, but it's got me scratching my head. Any ideas appreciated.

Download Favorg from click here and it will get them back for you.

The site's icons will disappear after you clear or delete the temporary internet files folder. That may be the reason. If you visit the sites again, I think the icons will re-appear, until the next time you clear that folder.

Although the link is valid it appears that FavOrg won't D/L. It was a free utility so maybe it is no longer available.

Thanks temp003,

You're right, I did clear my TIF's. I revisited a couple of sites and saved again... hey presto!

Thanks for the speedy reply.


It was a very interesting site, not sure how it was supposed to help though.
