How would one change the default Icon that this program uses?

First you need an icon to use - this is a small image, often 32x32 pixels, sometimes smaller, in .ico format. You can download some for free from the internet (try searching google for "free icon download" or similar), or you can create your own. To create your own you need to start with an image (gif, jpeg, whatever), shrink it to the appropriate size and convert it into a .ico file. Again there are some programmes you can download for free on the internet that will convert images to icons - ask google.

Once you have the .ico file you want to use click on the "custom resources" tab, then on the folder icon to the right of the "Application Icon" box and browse for the correct icon. This icon will then be used when you build your .exe file.
