There is no fix per se.  People using IE are viewing your page.  IE by
default, looks for a favicon.ico file in the root of the web.  If it finds
one, it displays it next to the URL in the address field.

If you don't like the error, then create a cool icon and place it in your
directory.  For more specifics, google is your friend.
