    Hey Blazey, I can't tell for speaking icons but I know there a fine program, a freeware, called 20/20 that does make icons and MANY other things. You can put a picture in it convert it into an icon. I tried it and found it very convenient. See for yourself here:



    20/20

    ...and of course if I see ready-made icons, I'll let you know! ;)

    i think for it to work the icons need to be .ico
    e.g.
    • control panel.ico
    • my documents.ico
    EDIT sorry Uguel i wasnt talking to you about the .ico, just letting blaze know :)

    Wow iceni60! We'll have icons for everybody! :)
    It's enough to please even the the quirkiest ones, lol!

    Well, Blaze I think my head has been turning too much lately:rolleyes:... and.. I just noticed that the program I use for Icons is not 20/20 but rather Photofiltre. I did have 20/20 but I like Photofiltre more for making icons.To make icons with Photofiltre: You open a picture in the program> go into tools> select the "convert into icon" button.

    Here's the link:;)

    photofiltre

    A little warning on the ThemeXP link. Any download that has a little red asterix like this * next to the title....contains adverts/spyware. 95% of all downloads on ThemeXP are like this :(. Info on this link.

    Regards,
    Jade.

    It is truly a sad day when people do such things even to something like a theme pack.

    I recently was a victim of this.

    I had down loaded a theme called Star craft by Blizzard.

    It had 3mb of malware spyware.

    In the install it had asked if i wanted to install these component's.

    I had said no unchecked the box's.

    It had installed them anyways with out my permission.

    This malware had bypass zone alarm security suit v5.1.011.000.

    All security applications failed.

    The only thing that alerted me was the fact that a pop up had come up with advertisement saying that i must click OK .

    I did not and as a result i was booted off the net from my isp provider account.

    I had connected to the net and it did it again.

    I finally killed it with ad-aware and finish the last of it with spy-bot search and destroy it took two applications to kill it.
