You can easily create your own icons in Windows XP. Click Start, All Programs, click Accessories, and then Paint. On the Image menu, click Attributes. Type 32 for both the Width and Height of the document, and make sure that Pixels is selected under Units. Click OK to create a new 32×32-pixel document: the size of an icon.
Here you can add type, color, or do whatever you’d like to your image. When you’re finished your work, Save As this file. You can save it anywhere, but remember give it a name followed by “.ico” extension, and click Save. (The extension “.ico” tells Windows that it’s an icon file.) You just created an icon! Now you can change any shortcut or folder to your own icon, just browse to it on your hard drive.
