ICO files are just simple bitmaps. 

the ICO gets associated with a 'link' to another program. More or less

  A disciple of another sect once came  to Drescher as he was eating his
morning meal. "I would like to give you this personality test", said the

was offered him and put it into the toaster, saying: "I wish the toaster
to be happy, too."
