    I would like to ask, how do you keep the icons from changing on your desk top. I make shortcuts to diff. web sites and they start of with a Icon for that site then windows changes it after a fue days. I right click on my desktop and checked and can only find the default items. This is just a minor problem, but with all the web shortcuts the same its ereosum. I run Win XP/sp1 with all the updates.







    sorry for such a stupied question but i have to learn THANK's Buddy.

    when you bookmark sites and they use an icon for the bookmark usually they associate the shortcut to a file called favicon.ico which gets deleted whenever you empty Internet Explorer's cache/temporary downloaded files..

    you can alternatively download the icons and put them some place where they won't get deleted. them manually associate the icon files to the URLs..

    go to your temporary internet files folder search for *.ico files.
    you will find loads of files. they all are icon files. save any of them that you want and then associate them with the shortcuts by keeping the icon files in a safe place i.e. from where they won't get deleted.
