I'm running IE8 on all my computers, but it has only affected one computer. And upon looking more, a few of my other favicons have changed, also. Google has the red "E" favicon of ESPN, lol. Looks pretty weird. The sites are opening according to their name, not the favicon next to it.
My techie guy said to clear my cache, so when I get back to the affected computer I'll try that. I'm eating right now
and then need to run around a bit. We did have a power blip yesterday... maybe that did something to the one computer. I had to reset one clock and all my computers rebooted except my laptop, which was sleeping like me when it happened
