lozanoa11, just make a shortcut the program you want to change the icon for. change the shortcut's icons in its properties dialog, then pin the shortcut to the taskbar. that way you can use whatever icons you like.

I think I understand your problem. U start an app with a nice icon from the desktop and on the taskbar appears the original icon of the app. That was my problem with the TotalCommander. You may use ResourceHacker or something to change the icon inside the app's .exe or .dll .
I think Resource Hacker is not compatible with Windows 7, so you have to "hack" it in XP.

You can convert your .png files also with the free irfanview.
