A friend of mine has XP with IE6. All of the favicons in her favorites suddenly disappeared. All of the links on her desktop lost their icons too. They are all back to the standard windows IE icon. She wants them back. We could do it manually (download all of the images and relink the icons) but she has over 100 favorites, most with a favicon.

Ouch!! I am no expert at this but, i would strongly reccomend that you

1) Change your broswer to firefox [ www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ ]
2) There is a setting on your computer you can look at [I do not know this part very well maybe a more experienced person could help] but you can go to 'My Computer' >>> Control Panel >>> Display Properties >>> Desktop >>> Customize Desktop >>> and then check what is going on there. Might be that, might not, i am not sure.

Besides that firefox is just so much better than anything else out there i have tried.

she would rather stick with IE (I know how horrible it is and I use firefox, but she won't) and that control panel unfortunately had nothing.
