You need to edit the alpha channel to stop it being too transparent, in the alpha channel any area that is white will represent no transparent area in the other channels, if you have a look at the alpha channel on the one I just did you will know what I mean, just make sure that any areas you don't want visible remain black in all the channels.
Mr Grim you are a genius cheers it's working now and looking good, thanks for explanation on how you fixed it too, great job

It's right there on the first page and also in the readme.txt in the download, make sure you get the x32 pack, it's pretty straight forward just follow the steps in the readme.txt. good luck and if you need any help just post back and someone will help you.
You will probably have to go here to get the latest build of those icons.http://virtualcustoms.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=12
