No More Icons...

    A few weeks back, I made a couple of shortcuts to my desktop for the WCHA Home page and WCHA Forums so I could click on them directly without logging into the web, using favorites, then WCHA, etc. It worked fine and I even had the red circle icon for the home page and a checkmark type design icon for the forums that came with them when I made the shortcuts... They are the ones that show up next to the names in the Favorites listing.

    I deleted a bunch of files in the temp directory and cleaned up my internet files and now I don't have the icons anymore. Only the IE Explorer default.

    Any ideas as to how I can get these icons back?

    Thanks, Joe

    FALSE ALARM... DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BUT BOTH ICONS ARE BACK AS WELL AS A COUPLE OF OTHERS NOT MENTIONED BEFORE. NO CLUE AS TO WHAT HAPPENED BUT THANKS ANYWAY...

    After the illusive icons came back, I went hunting for them and found them as *.ico files that where downloaded as cookies when logging on and then stored in the temporary files folder. I copied them to my "my documents/my pictures" folder and used properties to change the icon, same one with a new location, so I can now delete all of the temp files when I want to clean up my hard drive and not lose my icons.
