Goto your temp internet files folder, probably
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
and look for the files named 'favicon.ico'
drag one onto your desktop, rename it something that reflects what it is
Now make a folder somewhere, anywhere you like really
put your renamed icons in there.
Now goto your internet shortcut, right click > properties > change icon,
browse to your new icons folder and choose the icon you wish to see, click
on it then press OK, OK
