The default favicon is appearing on every PDF that our site links to within a browser, rather than the favicon we have set for the rest of the site.  I've checked every resource to fix this with no avail.  The consensus is, is so long as the favicon is placed inside the root file folder, which it is, via Site ->Admin->Appearance, this should be remedied... and it's not.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this once and for all? I really don't want to have to peg our IT company to 'research' it for us if it's something I can literally fix in 5 minutes.

download links, which don't use linkclick.aspx but direct URLs are not processed by DNN and DNN therefore can't assign proper Favicon.
IIS uses favicon from the root of the IIS webfolder instead. replace this one with your own favicon.ico (and make sure, not to overwrite it on Upgrades)

Thanks very much - can you advise as to how to access the root of the ISS webfolder?

to access the root folder of you IIS Website, where your DNN is installed, you have same options as for platform upgrades (depending on your hosting situation): FTP, WebDAV or RDP.
