    To associate a file with a program

    Open My Computer.

    Double-click a drive or folder.

    Right-click a file, and then click Open With. If Open With is not available, click Open.

    Follow the instructions under the option that matches the dialog box you see:
    Open With--Recommended Programs list

    Under Programs, click the program in which you want the file to open, or click Browse to locate the program you want.
    -or-
    Click the look for the appropriate program on the Web link to search the Web for a program to open your file.

    Open With--No Recommended Programs list


    Under Programs, click the program in which you want the file to open, or click Browse to locate the program you want. You can also type a comment that provides information about the file type. This information will appear in the folder window under Details when you view the file in a folder.
    -or-
    Click the look for the appropriate program on the Web link to search the Web for a program to open your file.

    Cannot open this file

    Windows cannot find a program to open the file. In the Cannot open this file dialog box, do one of the following:

    Click Use the Web service to find the appropriate program. This enables you to search the Web for the program that will open the file.
    -or-
    Click Select the program from a list to choose a program to open the file in the Open With dialog box.

    Well, programs that use that icon should look fine.
    But I would just go into the Registry and change the default icon for .ico files to "%1" or something...
