Last night I reinstalled Windows XP as I suspected I had some fouled up system files. This all went well except that now all my shortcut icons to websites such as Time Online are now just the generic 'E' (Explorer) rather than the site specific icons. Visiting the site is not correcting this by replacing the 'E' icon.

Have I missed something? How can I get my old icons back? :confused:

Does re-creating the shortcut bring the Icon back?

I'm not sure if they are supposed to retain the icon during a re-install.

By golly, I thought you had it there wratterus. But no, it just creates another 'E' icon. Damn.

Damn. :lol:

That worked for me last time.

Uhm...

Maybe delete them all, clean out temp files, reboot, and try again?
