When you do a disc cleanup (Start/Control Panel/Perf. and Maint./Free up
space uncheck the Offline Web Page item. You could also download TweakUI
(Microsoft Powertoys) at
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/... -
it has a restore function for Icons. There are a number of useful tools
there.

I don't understand your question. Anyway not every URL has it's own
associated icon, sometimes you have to go back to the URL to get the
icon back. Another way around is to customize your icon. R-click on the
icon and choose "other pictogram", and go to a location where you have
icons...
