    Greetings, herbalifeexpert !

    Custom icons are lost when you clean your cache.

    These are known as favicons.ico (Favorite Icons) and they normally will only last until your Internet Explorer Temp files are cleared.

    This program will allow you to save the favicons.ico (Favorite Icons) permanently in a different folder and re-associate your favorites with the stored icons.

    FavOrg - Restore and Save Favorite Icons (Line 108)


    Navigate to the Temporary Internet Files, and drag the icons to the desktop and rename them to whatever name you like.

    Then, create a folder called Icon Selection. Move all of the renamed favicons to this folder placed in the root directory of C. Right click on the Icon, select Browse and navigate to your Icon Selection folder. Choose the renamed favicon and click ok. These icons will be permanent.

    When you right click on an icon, select browse and navigate to the Icon Selection folder. Choose the renamed favicon you want and click ok. Your customized icons will be permanent.

    Best wishes!
