Dreamweaver with Apache HTTP web server

We are using Dreamweaver with Apache HTTP server and everytime we try to preview a web page in a browser (IE8) it wants us to download the index.php - I assuming something is not setup correctly. We are port 8080 as we are already us port 80 for another web program (SugarCRM).
In the error log I have found the following error but it means nothing to me so not sure what to do next. Error: [Fri Nov 19 11:37:34 2010] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: c:/Programs Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs/favicon.ico
I have checked this folder and yes it is missing but how do I rectify this. I have also included the full error log so you can see if there is anything else that is wrong that I may have missed. I am a novice with Apache so any help would be wonderful.   error.log
access.log
install.log

You don't have to worry about the favicon file.

What a favicon is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

Can't comment on the index.php part of the question.

Is there anyone out there who can advise why we are being asked to open a file rather than getting a preview of the website page created. Please help as I am new to Apache.

This did not answer my question really. I am still stuck not knowing why the index.php wants to download instead of just showing the webpage created. Closing this question as no one seems to want to answer it.
