Custom Icon

Why am I haveing a problem using my own icon that I made in Paint?
I renamed it .ico and can see it on my desktop but VB 5 says "Invalid Property Value."

Is my icon bad? How do I make a good one?
Thanks

Paint DOES NOT save icons... It only saves monochrome, 16 Color 256 Color, and 24-bit BMPs.

You need to use a package that saves ICO files...

By the way, you can go to http://www.shareware.com and search for "icon editor"...
