Hi i had alittle issue back with windows xp when i had that, but eventually the icons would settle down and be correct if i just gave it some time.
But with windows7 it really is a pain. No only do my site icons (of my websites) not show up correctly, they keep changing to this default earth globe. I finally have to change them back manually by using change icon and browse and finding the icon on my system.
Then just now i added a new subdomain and all of a sudden all the icons for that whole domain changed to the one i just added, im like WTH. so i checked the link tag on the site and it was correct.
Makes me wonder what my users and customers are dealing with, they dont have the luxury of just assigning my site ico file manually.
So two questions:
What is the deal here, why do they change?
Why does windows make this so complicated. If there is a link tag in the file that says the icon should be this ico file on the site then WTH is the problem and why cant windows handle such a simple task?
