Right, I can't remember if I've asked this before but this is odd.

Normally when I click the drop down on the IE adress field, I get a list of my recently visited sites, all with a IE symbol before the address. That is normal.

Today (And once before) one of my recently visited sites has a square black smilie face instead of an IE symbol?! It kind of looks like papa lazaru and it scare me!!!

Please help!

ok it's a thing called a favicon. It's designed to replace the standard IE icon, I'm not sure why berks live shows up like that and the others dont

Ah, cheers, good to know I'm not being invaded!

Because it has set its fav icon to be that, and the others haven't. ;)

Dorkstar is correct. Sites have the ability to set that icon.

Have you not seen the site with the big blue C ?
Doesn't look like it ?!?
