Creation of Windows icon?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I am hoping to get some advice and tips on creating icons for use within a Windows OS from within OSX. Any programs that work well? Any links that may help to show steps or tutorials?

I have tried out a program called "Icon Brush" but the .ICO files it saves don't seem to show up correctly when viewed within Windows. I guess I'm missing something. Anybody with experience?

Thanks in advance for feedback.

    You can get icon2ico and make OS X icons into Windows icons. Also IconBuilder and Iconographer will both save to Windows format.

    I like Iconographer for viewing icons. It saves to ico including the new WinXP format. It also works with Classic and Mac OS X icons. It doesn't even do any "shareware" stuff except nag you every now and then. Versions are availiable for Classic and Mac OS X.
