    Hi Everybody.
    I noticed a hijack of my Red "Y" yesterday next to my Yahoo Link and now today I see it next to my Gmail Link. WTH! I have ran AdAware and Spybot along with other programs but nothing has caught this. Has any heard of this before? Google showed no results. Thanks folks.

    There is no reason why you should be using Internet Explorer.
    That's what you get....period!

    Another very unhelpful pointless word of advice from shovelhead.
    I didn't ask you what the best web broswer was or what your opinions are to anything and once again you added another meaningless notch to your ever expanding belt of useless posts you are so notoriously famous for.
    Why do you try any more? Do you really feel yourself as a valuable commodity or that you have tenure to now just run off the mouth like your hot sh!t? At the best you are just warm diarrhea in a paper cup.
    Will you just be so kind as to bother someone else today and take the time to mature, if not for me then for the community.

    If I can save someone from destroying their machine and/or work files
    by being infected by a bug (if that's what this is) as the result of visiting
    porn or torrent sites, it's well worth it to me to scold people.
    If my kid got crotch critters my first reaction would be to remind him that he shouldn't have been knocking boots
    with Mary Ellen Rottencrotch, not recommend a crab shampoo.
    Consider it tough love Sporto....I care.

    He has a point, Firefox is much safer than IE7, as a heads up.

    No clue... looks vaguely familiar though but I can't seem to place what that A stands for. Try re-setting your internet settings?

    Look Shove I don't need life lessons on or why I need to go from Coke to Pepsi and in the past I have tried using FireFox for awhile but I don't really care for treating my browser like it's a damn hamburger and dress it up with bells and whistles.
    Although while I was on "pissed off" mode and didn't see your second reply being posted until after mine, it did give me some advice on where to look and I thank you for that. But I know I am not the only person here using EI and I would love to hear from those people that do, so if anyone here can't contribute to this topic and feels they have something to say then by all means just skip it or start your own thread and find someone that cares.
    Man there are now becoming to many times where a thread jumps track and goes another direction. Enough already!

    I'm using firefox on my laptop here today, and my signs101 icon is the myspace icon. So my guess is, it's not browser related. I don't know if this is a way to check, but one could create a desktop link to that site and see what the icon looks like. Maybe using IE is less safe. I don't know. but I would think something that would change how your icons appear could come from anywhere.

    My suggestion is do a search. Or try some techy forum. I mean we are just sign makers after all. How much help can we be?:ROFLMAO:

    I do know they are called favIcons. Why not try a search to find the answers you are looking for.

    You Having a bad day Cork, Most of the folks here are sign makers, If I knew what the answer to what your browser malfunction was I would certainly offer a solution, but I have no Idea
