Hello all,

Kind of a silly question, but I will ask anyway :thumbsup: All of the icons in my bookmarks seemed to have "gone blank". Is there a way to restore them? I am running windows xp home.

When you run some cleaners like Ccleaner or some of the cleaning functions of Revo it removes a lot of files and the little icon beside a bookmark is one of them. Once you start visiting the sites again they will reappear.

If you don't want to do all that manually. There is also this little app. FavIconizer
