You can just right click the icon got to properties and look for change icon.Than just browse to your new icon and apply. Here are some google icons for you to look at - Google Icons - Download 161 Free Google Icon. The icon shouldnt be just a white tile in the first place though, is it a desktop shortcut and what is it for.

Glad your problem is solved RonBin. Here's some additional information for any other members who are interested in finding other available shortcut icons in Vista and Win 7.
On the Desktop, right-click the file or folder whose icon you wish to change, right-click on Properties, and then select Change Icon. When the new window opens up, you can either select from the icon choices given OR even better, click the Browse button, which takes you to the C drive\Windows, and there's a whole looooooooooooong list of .dll files/folders to choose from. Go to any one of these icon folders and select any one of the many, many icon choices offered. Here's a list of my favorite icon folders, (and I think imageres.dll and Shell32.dll have the largest selection).
You can experiment to your heart's delight. If you don't like your choice, try selecting another one, or two, or as many as you like, until you find one you like. You can do this for your Desktop icons, and the same icon should also appear in Quick Launch and Windows Explorer. Happy hunting!!!
Here's a list of some of my favorite .dll icon files:
