    Starting this morning, the bookmark and URL symbols for my favorite forums have all changed into purple peace symbols. :p

    Beats me.

    Wife or kids playing with the computer?

    My bookmark menu all have the big "Z" next the the Zealot links. Wondering if you might not have picked up a virus or something.

    Nobody around to play with the computer, and it only affects Microsoft Internet Explorer, not Firefox.

    Everything still seems to work okay, and Norton Anti-viral with all the bells, whistles and toys doesn't register anything, but it is a little odd. :confused:

    when you say affects only IE and not firefox, that sounds like some kind of spyware...

    How odd! Be peaceful, I guess. :)

    I would just go with it, enjoy it, and be glad it's not a swastika or something. :)

    Have a peaceful day! :wave:

    That's a possibility, but if something got into my machine to change my bookmark icons, I'd wonder what else it is doing there.:eek:

    That is it - but it appears before mine rather than after.

    Yeah, its just Craigslist's Favicon. As to how it got to all of your bookmarks? I think it might just be a hiccup in your browser. My FF3 looses the Favicons every month or so, not sure why.

    Careful with the spelling. Craigslist. The other will take you to a pornographic site. I entered it with the kids in the room. :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

    Worth noting and avoiding! Thanks. :thumb:

    Besides, at my age the sudden drop in blood pressure would kill me.
