Favorites Icons

Hallo, Does anyone know how to stop IE from changing Favorites Icons back to IE Icons. It makes it harder to spot the site icon from a long list of Favorites if they are all IE icons. I am running XP Pro with IE v.6.0. Thanks, Bert.

IE Favicons is a demo feature only. Everytime you clear the TIF (cache) the icon is gone. There was some hope that in the past five plus years MS would fix this, but no.

Look for the last free version of FAVORG (google?) to fix this if you must keep the icons.

Bert, You can download "FavOrg 1.2" for Free at the link below. It's in the right column under "PC Magazine Utilities". It will work with all versions of Windows & Internet Explorer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
