Default Odd thing with RCU on my PC?

This is odd?

I'm using Windows XP. I have all my RCU stuff in "My Favorites." Every RCU "Icon" in my favorites is now an "e-bay" Icon? That is, the RCU icons are gone and have been replaced with e-bay ones.

A click still opens it up correctly.

What's happening? Others have this?

I'm running XP Pro and use Internet Expolorer version 8. My internet icons look normal.

The problem exists because your computer stores the icon file that RCU uses on your local hard drive. Somewhere along the line the Ebay icon file overwrote the RCU icon file. The easiest way to fix this is to simply go into your Internet Explorer settings and erase all of your temporary internet files. This will remove all the stored icon files from your computer, and the next time you visit a website such as RCU it will re-download the icon file to your harddrive and all should be well after that.

Ken,

Thanks for your help, but I don't understand?

If I remove my "settings" what will happen to my list in "Favorites."

Start from scratch? Or will those "favorites" remain AND just the icon change? I'd rather deal with an "E-bay" icon then loose all my Favorites.

All my RCU stuff is there.

You're not going to remove all of your settings or your favorites information. Only the temporary internet files that are stored on your computer. Removing these will not remove your favorites or your stored settings.

To remove them follow these steps:
Click on Tools and click Internet Options
Then under "Browsing history" click the delete button.
Then under "Temporary Internet Files" click the "Delete files button".
When it's finished select "OK" and "OK" again to get out of your internet options
