    I've recently moved from XP Pro to Vista Home Premium. Please, no laughing.... My current issue is trying to get my websites favicon (or any websites favicon) to display as the shortcut to that website on my desktop instead of the IE7 icon. I've changed the desktop view to classic, as suggested by some, but I still get the IE7 icon for the shortcut. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Not yet. There are several "quick fixes" that work for some Vista users (?), but none have worked for me. Apparently, this is a known issue w/o a fix. If you hear of a fix please let me know. I'll do the same. Thanks.
