That is not a very good program form my point of view. It dose not suport tranparecy and dose not have tools easy to find etc. Is there any other. (I am googleing it but not finding any thing free yet.)

Hello,

I would have to agree with Tyger that Irfanview is an excellent choice and does support transparency when you save the image, you can select what color you would like to be transparent. I use Irfanview for almost all of my icon editing needs.

Another option may be Paint.NET [http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/], it is a nice free image editor with intuitive GUI that I believe supports ICO files.

Cheers,
Tom
