transparent. But do .ico files allow a transparent color? when i select
the image for the notify icon it askes for type .ico. now i know i can set
a transparent background with png's ect, but can i use tranparent (colors)
with an ico?

Yes. Any program that lets you edit icon files should include a
transparent colour (and another special colour used for inverting) in
its palette. The Visual Studio icon editor supports this, for example.
