Looking for sample 16 X 16 icons

I need to make a demo program for a meeting, and need 4 16 X 16 icons.  But any search for icons brings up a single image with hundreds of icons.  I would need to cut out a 16 X 16 area, and I do not have that kind of time.

Any place where I can find free icon files which I can simply download and insert in my program?

    Microsoft recommends that your icon contain these three sizes:
    48 x 48 pixels
    32 x 32 pixels
    16 x 16 pixels
    Each icon should contain these three color depths to support different monitor display settings:
    24-bit with 8-bit alpha (Windows 7)
    8-bit (256 colors)
    4-bit (16 colors)
    Having said that if you own some images that are suitable for your program
    Online Pic To Icon Converter
    The online tool help you to convert icon from your picture, photo and image files.
     It quickly resize images of JPG, GIF, PNG, ICO, BMP or TIFF formats without having to install any software on your computer.
    And convert them into the icon size you need: 16x16, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64, 96x96, 128x128, 256x256. You can also choose the output icon file formats: ICO, PNG, JPG, GIF, or BMP.
    As you said there is literately hundreds of icon types what did you have mind?
    A folder/directory? type of icon or something else
