Icon changes in IE7?

Hi

Had some issues with my PC for the last week and just discovered this
today - a couple of icons in my favourites and Google browser have
changed.

In the first screen snip, Goggle's icon has changed into a red star/
sun from the G we all know. In the second screen snip, eBay has changed
into a tower symbol. Also, you can see the same icons in the top of my
favourites panel to the left-hand side.

Any ideas? Have i been compromised? I run Vista Ultimate 64 with
Ad-aware 2007 and Avast 4.8 plus Defender: all 3 programs are run
everyday and nothing's been found recently.

Thanks

Hello,
I would guess it just your icon cache that is corrupt, delete it and let it
repair by deleting this file
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\IconCache.db
1. Remember that those folders are hidden
2. %username% should be replaced with your login account

This info is taken from:
