I recognize this favicon, but I can't recall the software/website where I've seen it before. Or is it actually a BC favicon that I've just never noticed? (I don't really think so.)

Now, I know this isn't Yahoo's favicon. In fact, it's piriform.com's little pear logo.

And this is from my dropdown Links menu on the menubar. That's CCleaner's favicon next to the Microsoft link (CCleaner is a Piriform product). What the heck is going on here?

I've tried closing and reopening IE, but that doesn't change anything. I only just now thought of deleting my history, which I'll do after I finish this post; might even reboot. Who knows, maybe I'll be back with a positive report that everything has been returned to normal. OTOH, this is me, Dialer, who's having this weird problem, you know? :thumbsup:

Thanks, tg...

I ended up clearing my history and cache and rebooting before I saw your post. Of course I've lost all my cookies, which is a PITA. But I think everything's back to normal again, including BC's little TV screen.

Nope, not quite. The MS page you linked to has kind of a double favicon, as if one is layered on top of another. Guess I'll follow their instructions, but I don't look forward to the prospect of editing my registry. :thumbsup: I'd rather restore a backup from a couple of days ago, if that might possibly work. There is a difference between what MS says and my situation: it refers to icons in the computer's system, vs. the favicons, which is where my problem is.

Hmmm. I just remembered that I have messed a bit with my system icons. :trumpet:

Your friend, Dialer the OverTweaker :flowers:
