you know those little icon pictures that are in your favorites folder when you add a new favorite to your browser. Well mine disappear after awhile. Is there a way to save these little icons so they don't disappear?

As far as I know the icons aren't saved to your pc - just the link. The icon is a link to the icon file on the related linked server.

Does this make sense..?

Mind you I may be wrong - but that's what I would normally imagine goes on as the icon is linked within the homepage itself like this:

File: index.html or default.asp

That's why when the icon on the websites server changes - so does yours in your Favourites directory.

Sure is :) :)

Get hold of FavOrg here.

This smart little app is FREEWARE and enables you to keep all your favourite iccle icons. :)

It works for Windows 95/98/NT/2000 so should do the job for ya.

the favorg program worked. Thanks for the help.

Also I figured out why they were disappearing before. I guess the icons were stored in the temporary internet folder so when I would delete that folder the icons would then disappear.
