Many recent browsers automatically request a favicon.ico located in the root
directory of all sites they visit.  It is the little icon you see next to
the URL and Bookmarks for some sites.

There is a handy web application for making these from any image file at - if you save one of these
as favicon.ico in the root of each site you will stop seeing these error
messages.  They are safely ignorable too.
