    Hello.

    My first post--only took me 9 months. Similar questions have been asked, but I haven't found a specific answer to mine.

    ALL my IE Favorites icons are the MS Blue E. I have tried deleting links and adding them back to Favorites, and several other suggestions I found in the forums, but none of the unique web page icons show up, only the Blue E. And every web page shows the Blue E icon in the Address.

    I'm running Windows ME.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi dcamburn

    Download the FavOrg.zip from this site :-

    http://themes.myqth.com/Downloads/favorg.zip

    FavOrg scans the Web sites in your Favorites list for favicons (custom icons provided by the Web site). The icons are displayed on the Favorites bar, the Favorites menu, and the Address bar. Custom icons make the Favorites list easier to scan, letting you locate a given shortcut faster. Microsoft added the custom icon feature to IE5; FavOrg brings this functionality to IE4 as well. Favicons are usually lost when you delete your Temporary Internet Files, but FavOrg preserves them.

    Thanks, SteamWiz.

    I installed this prior to your reply and also saved select favorites to a permanent file.

    Appreciate the help and timely response.
