    My Ebay icon keeps randomly changing to a globe icon


    This is not a major problem but I would like to resolve it if I can.

    The Ebay icon on my desktop keeps randomly changing to a dark green globe of the world icon.

    Why has it started doing this and how can I stop it.

    I would also like to know where icons (.ico) files are stored in Windows 8.


    Thanks

    Sorry for the delay in replying...I have been away.

    The problem of my Ebay icon randomly changing appears to have stopped now...no idea why as I have done nothing.
    I would still like an answer to my questions though...if anyone can help.

    Thanks
