im not sure where to ask this but im looking for ICONS that you guys might use when programming applications.
XP colorful ones if possible.

im building an application only for my personal use and wasnt looking to go commercial or anything with the icons.
i just wanna build a nice looking theme to my project.

Icons for like password changing and information screens, users, lists, reports.
etc......

Have you tried to do a search on your computer (running XP OS) for files with the *.ico extension?

There is a great library of icons extracted from the toolbars of common applications here:

If they are for your personal applications there shouldn't be a problem with copyrights etc...

You won't find many icons on your system doing a search for *.ico files.  Most of them are embedded in DLL and EXE files.  There are many programs that can search these files and extract them for you.  If you don't want to go that route, then you can download them from sites such as that I provided.  A simple Google search of "icons" will give you a multitude of choices.
