Thanks for that link. I've recently found a free icon editor that can handle 256x256 Vista icons:

For icons themselves I have this link, but not all are free to use. You have to read the licensing for each set:

IcoFX is quite good.

Be aware that it hasn't been updated for 2 years; it may have been abandoned.
