Maybe do yourself a small favor : copy E:/Apache/manual/images/favicon.ico to 
E:/Apache/htdocs/favicon.ico, and avoid these irrelevant and annoying log messages, while

at the same time saving CPU cycles and bandwidth.

There are cleverer ways with Alias or 302's, but this is quick and dirty.
Browsers (or maybe just IE) request this thingy as a matter of fact for each directory, 
just to display the cute little icon in the URL bar. Nothing you can do about that.
But you can save your Apache a few disk lookups trying to find it and writing a log 
message; similarly, once a browser got it once, it will cache it, and not ask for it 
again. Everybody wins.
The triumph of looks over substance.
