"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's (free!) utilities, which I've been using for many years:

One of them is IconsExtract:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/iconsext.html

Scroll to the bottom of the page at the above URL for the download links. It comes in two forms — ZIP file or installable (Setup.exe). I prefer the ZIP file, but do whichever you prefer. With the ZIP file, simply un-zip it and run <iconsext.exe> file. Point it to any file with icons, select whatever icons you want to extract, and then do File>Save Selected Icons. It will save all of the icons in .ICO files. Works a charm! Regards, Joe
