    Does any1 know what this supposed to be? I have installed a slimstat statistics tool, and sometimes i get this /favicon.ico listed.

    It is the little icon that shows up (if you have one) in the browser's address bar. For instance, here it is a large blue "W".
    It'll show up in stats as it is requested by visitor's browsers.

    Use a full url to the favicon:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.example.com/favicon.ico" />
    or you will see errors still.

    Where do I put the full url you mentioned? Also where should I upload the favicon too?

    The favicon should be placed in your root directory (the directory that holds your blog) and the url should be placed between the <head> </head> tags after any meta tags in the header.php
