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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
