Where to find good icons?

I'd like references on where to find some good (quality) icons to use for
form and application icons (for the EXE). Most of the free stuff isn't that
great looking and there isn't a good selection. A site offering previews of
icons or purchase of a single icon would be nice.

Thanks,
Brett

They're good icons, there's lots of 'em (10,000+) and they're free.

work friendly so be aware. But they have lots of nice icon sets (imho)

I'd like to download this http://www.deviantart.com/view/16913797/ but it
just brings me to a page ending in ICO. Do you know how to buy or download
icons from the site?

Thanks,
Brett

Brett,

Instead of left clicking on the download button, right click it and select
"Save Target As". The file will then download as an icon file (.ico)

For me, I either get a gif, jpeg, or html file depending on what I click.
Using IE6 on WinXP. What are you using that you can right for the ICO
file?

When I click the down arrow, it goes to an ICO page but I can't view source
and the image is a bitmap. Where do you see "download"?

thanks,
brett

Brett,

I am using internet explorer and when I right click on the download link
(the downward facing arrow) the third option down on the context menu says
"Save Target As..." when clicking this I get the standard windows dialogue
box asking where to save the ico file.

If you are getting a gif I suspect you are clicking save picture?
