Are you talking about Favorites?  If so, right click on item to change, then properties, then click icon.  Select the file (.exe, .dll, etc.) or ico containing your icon.  Viola!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you browse with Internet Explorer, and bookmark a webpage, and then click on "favorites" in IE, you should see the favicons. If not, follow the steps above to put the path to the icon on your hard drive.

I thought it might make it easier for you to click on the link http://yahoo.com/favicon.ico and then, on the top, choose "save as complete web page", that will get you the folder with the icon in it.

 You should be able to right click on the link in IE and choose "save target as". Either way, you should be able to obtain that icon on your hard drive. Then you can put it where you like, and then make a path to it (with the instructins) and it should be fine. If you follow these steps, you should be able to see your favicon.

The Search command you are using uses the MenuExt function built-in to Internet Explorer, which unfortunately does not support putting icons next to the text in the menu.

If you want to add/remove entries in the right-click context menu:

ToolbarCop - To removes an option:
http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/utils/ToolbarCop.exe 

Manual Procedure:
1. Click [Start] [Run] type [REGEDIT]
2. Navigate to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\MenuExt.
Each subkey of this key represents one menu item. Many will include an
ampersand (&) to define the underlined key associated with the command.

Highlight the key you want to delete (for example,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Zoom &In).
Choose Export from the Registry menu and export that branch to a file.
Now delete the key

I'm not sure if you can do that, becoz Google toolbar probably add some DLL files then registering those dlls to IE's right click context menu.!

KenneniahCommented:
Yes, things like Google Toolbar use shell extensions that get installed with their software. There is no native way to add an icon to that menu as I mentioned above. To add an icon, you'd need to create a shell extension dll which you would have to write and compile.
