Windows 7: IE 8 Favorites Bars' icons

IE 8 Favorites Bars' icons

hi, the icons of the sites added to the Favorites Bar tend to disappear once in a while (my icons are not stored in the default Win location, I have moved them to a permanent location specifically as so they don't get deleted every time a clean up my computer) and I can't seem to find a workaround for that.
can anyone suggest a solution that does not involve third party software? there has to be a reason why in the Favorites menu the icons shos up but in the bar itself do not. Please see attached screenshot, thanks.

1 of settings in Ad Muncher stops the Fav Icons being changed to the sites from IE default.

I wonder if that was your initual problem.

as I said in my original post, I;m not interested in third party software, I want to know why this happens, besides, the problem is only with the icons in the favorites bar, not with all icons.
thanks.

OK no need to bite, keep your panties on.

I never said you need use 3rd party App.

I thought it may have been possible you had used Ad-Muncher as its the best in its filed PERIOD and that's why your Fav Icons are messed up.

Best of luck getting help with your attitude ! (looks up at how many replied ).
