Windows 7: Explorer losing link icons?

28 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
Explorer favicons disapearing for no reason?

This new explorer seems to have some strange problems. One of them is that it loses the favicons in favorites at least once a day for me. All the little icons in favorites just dissapear for no reason at all. I have to go back to the sites and restart explorer to get them back. Tried a complete reformat but still the problem persists. I'am sure someone else is having this problem. Does anyone know of a fix for this cuz it's driving me insane.
