    I noticed that when you bookmark a site: Like Yahoo or MSN. There is a small icon picture that is associated with the bookmark.
    But when I re-open the bookmarks later on. It is replaced with the standard boring windows "E" explorer icon. Does anybody know how to keep it from defaulting?

    Those are called favicons and IE won't save them for you. But there's a little freeware program called FavOrg (I think I got it from the Ziff Davis Download page) that does the trick.

    an alternate way

    I keep a folder in my windows Directoryt I call ~Icons. I save icons and icon files in this dierectory, including favorites icons. Then I just associate those bookmarks with the icon in this directory........ Works great!
