Off topic- Any freeware to make my own desktop icons?

I hate the selection of windoz icons available and would like to make my own.
I apologize if this is off-topic a little, but it may be helpful to others who also hate their windoz icons ....

Is there any freeware available that can help me do this task?
(By the way I also have a mac and if it would help me with icons for this as well that would be great but not necessary)

Googling I see programs but am leary of a lot of freeware unless it is recommended by people.
This forum is a great source of information so that is why I am asking here.

Thanks
K

You could try IcoFX. It was in a Portable Apps package I used at one time. I never really used it, but I opened it once and it appeared to be pretty well laid out.

A quick Google search of "how to make a windows icon" lead me to this site http://converticon.com/

Upload a pic and it will make an icon out of it.
