Can anyone tell me what this is and why it's there? (I circled it with red) It seems to only come up on a few websites, not all. ImageShack - Hosting :: iconcl5.jpg
Could be that virus you were talking about earlier. Might have dug in so deep a system restore wouldn't remove it. Or it could just be a screw up in IE7.
It's a website icon. Some have them, some don't.
That one, as I'm sure you've guessed, isn't Google's. It could be a virus, or it could be the icon for another page that you've recently visited. Opera, at any rate, sometimes screws this up.
But I'd vote for malicious software, pariticularly if it happens with multiple pages.
i'd say virus too. if it were some browser bug it wouldn't be happening to all websites
I don't know if this will help but I deleted my cookies and Internet files and then everything went back to normal. So I thought problem solved but then I found the same icon on another site. So, problem back. Well if it is a virus then AVG, my firewall, search and destroy, hijackthis, and a system restore didn't work. How do I get rid of it then?
try using a different browser to see if it comes up on install.

What would you suggest? Firefox maybe?
Yea get firefox, really good web browser. They say it's faster but I haven't seen any improvement from IE7 to FX.
It didn't make a difference. The picture I show below shows the icon but I've been going on random sites to see if it comes up. Found nothing. That's the only site of about 10 other sites I clicked on...maybe that's where it's coming from? But I'm positive I noticed the icon before I've even knew the site existed...:confused: ImageShack - Hosting :: icon2hg1.jpg Could someone please go to warhammeralliance.com and tell me what your icon looks like for you? Thanks
Well I used IE since I disabled favicons in Firefox and that was the very same icon you got. However Google's icon didn't change. I just hope there was nothing bad on that website you gave :p
