    Is there any program that will enable in IE my organized favorites to stay in the order I have placed them. Just some not all of my organized favorites are in different order each day.

    the 2 in particular have different icons,ntfs.org & Spammers Paradise.

    this what i mean by differant icons

    It sounds like you have some spyware adding sites to your favs and re-arranging. Do you run Adaware or the like? I use IE as well as Firbird, Mozilla and Opera and I haven't seen anything like that.

    ok, I think I understand what you were asking now. You have your favs in a custom order, not alphabetized.
    Are they alphabetized when you go back in? or are they just moved around randomly.

    Click on favorites, then right-click on the one you want to change.
    Go to properties and the Web Document tab (in XP)
    There is a button there for change icon
    When you click that, there is a box that says look for icons in this file, make sure it says:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\url.dll <---hopefully you installed Windows to std directories

    Then choose the standard "E" icon which should be at the top of the list.

    bluzboy, use the method wag describes to copy a path to an icon that you want.

    then repeat on the icons that you don't want, and paste in the new path

    I love favicons...I use a program called favorg that keeps the facicons there till I don't want them

    funny though, when I first read the post, I thought you had a "favorites" order issue, not a "favorites" icon issue.
