    Sure, when creating the your settings in the registry, you need to specify an icon. Go to this registry key and take a look, you can point it directly at an .ico file as well.

    Code:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Display
    
    Icon   =    %SystemRoot%\System32\display.dll,-1
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Display]
    
    "Icon"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,\

      69,00,73,00,70,00,6c,00,61,00,79,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,2c,00,2d,00,31,\
