    Are you looking for just a custom icon?
    Go to this link, post the one you want here, and I'll resize & iconify it for you in GIMP and then you can download it.

    I use GIMP to create .ico files(icons).
    But if you don't need to work with graphics, and you are looking for a site to convert to .ico go here: Convert your image to ICO format
    You can also convert sound files to .wav for custom system sounds(which is how I found this site,)

    There you also have these converters, I recommend you check it out, and have fun:
    ***these are links to the converters***
