Internet Explorer Favorites Icons


Recommended Posts

There are cached versions of website icons for Favorites any websites visited stored for Internet Explorer.  I am not sure if this is specific to Windows 7 and/or Internet Explorer 11.


Even if you use CCleaner and clear out the browser's cache, the icons are still saved.


You can delete imagestore.dat and clear out the image icon data at:
[Drive Letter]/Users/[username]/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/imagestore/[Folder Name]/imagestore.dat


To do this automatically, just add the location to the Includes section of CCleaner and select the "files and subfolders option":

[Drive Letter]/Users/[username]/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/imagestore/


It would be nice if the option to clear this was automatically included in CCleaner.
