    There are a number of free/shareware icon makers available and hundreds of existing icon libraries. I usually start with http://www.webcom.com/html/icons.shtml and go from there. Happy hunting!

    If you want a good icon editor, check out Icon Forge from CursorArts. You can download a trial version but costs less than $40 for the full program.

    For a simple icon you can make a bitmap about 32 pixels square in Paint or anything else and change its type to ico. (i.e. save it as fred.bmp and then rename it to fred.ico. But this does not allow you to set transparent backgrounds etc.
