You might want to clarify what you mean by "save the logo without downloading it again".  If you are trying to programatically save the image, then I think you either need to know the direct source of the image or create a collection of images and iterate through it until you find a match.

After navigating the web browser, and the web-page is readystate.complete, you could do:

       
 Dim WebImgs = WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementsByTagName("Img") 'create collection


        For Each image In WebImgs

            With image.domelement 'use dom element for the finer details

                If .alt = "Google" And .width = 275 And .height = 95 Then 

                    Dim Client As New WebClient 'if an image on the page meets criteria
                    Client.DownloadFile(.href, "C:\Users\Win7User\Desktop\" & .nameprop) 
                    Client.Dispose()
                End If


            End With

        Next

Open in new window


So in this example, should an image on that page match the speficiations for the ALT string and image Size, a webClient will be invoked which would save the item to your desktop as the filename it encounters (google.png for example).
