Default Favicon switches

I have a desktop icon for a particular online service, but I don't like their default icon, so I have specified a different icon to use.

However, I find that after rebooting the shortcut switches back to the default icon provided by the online service. Should this happen? Can I do anything about it?

Not a big deal, but I find it annoying.

Could you make it read-only in Windows Explorer to stop it being reset?

Default Shortcut or Favicon

Interesting idea, that. I suppose I would have to set the Shortcut to read only, not the Favicon.

I was able to shut off Write permission, but not Modify permission with Windows Explorer. I tried rebooting after making the change, no change in the icon this time.
