    Recently, I started creating custom desktop & system icons out of images. It's fun, and while I do enjoy my desktops cool new look, I'm curious if there is any risk in doing so?

    I use the website www.converticon.com to convert the image file into an .ICO file and then apply it as the icon in the programs properties.

    I haven't run into any problems I'm simply making sure I'm not putting my computer at risk.

    Thanks
