I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is this something new?  Could the 2 be part of the icon?
Right click on the Favorite and see if you can Change Icon.

I think I've seen that recently.  Which anti-virus program are you running?

It is a new web application I am working on.  It is not a part of the icon itself and just started appearing today.  I am thinking it has to do with something in code but cannot seem to debug as if it were an error count and in FireFox and Chrome.  IE does not display an icon at all.

These are my favicon references in the html
<!-- For Modern Browsers -->
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/img/favicons/favicon.png">
<!-- For everything else -->
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/img/favicons/favicon.ico">

Turns out a piece of code I was using referenced a library called tinycon that was responsible for placing the 2 in the favicon.  Thanks for everyone's help!
