I did the same thing and I have the exact problem.

He doesnt mean to change the ie icon. He means that whenvever you go to a site it has a little icon (not all sites) in the address bar and when you add it to yr favorites it saves that icon by the name of the website. But after the format it wont show the icons anymore.

Any ideas??

They are stored in Temporary Internet Files and all are named favicon.ico
If you don't have backup for this folder when you do a reformat, the only way to get them back is follow the link and make another favorite shorcut.

There is a program that can retrieve those icons directly on the web sites and keep them on your comp. The name is Favorg. I use it so I never lose those icons in IE.

You can download it here

Hope that helps...

I downloaded Favorg 1.2 All seemed fine but I have noticed it has thrown some of my other icons into disarray.

Is there anywhere to download 1.4 for free? I've only found it at the PC magazine so far.

Cheers.
