You know how when you bookmark favorites in Internet Explorer you get a logo by the name? Like the multi colored eBay logo or the red Y for Yahoo?
About a week ago my favorites suddenly started changing the logos around. Not all of them, just a few. For example, game colony now has the University of Phoenix logo and another site has the eBay logo, and the Fox news logo comes and goes on several favorites.
I tired deleting the favorite and re-adding it and it still came up with the wrong logo.
I don't seem to be having any issues, but it's weird and I'm wondering about a Trojan of some sort.
Ahhhhh, thanks for that link, TMacK. I find myself having to clear my temp files several times a day because of this odd favicon behavior, so I'm hoping FavOrg will do the trick. I'll let you know how it does with Vista Home Premium.
Good luck, jighead45!
ETA: The US mirror site returned a 404, but the Romanian one is d/ling now.
Am happy to report that it definitely works in Vista, with the exception of the Help file, since Vista doesn't support the .hlp extension. Sigh. Fortunately, it's a fairly intuitive program - at least in terms of checking for bad links in my Favorites folder, so that's nice. I'm still experimenting with the favicons aspect.
