What's wrong with png2ico?
Sorry if it's free, but you can make a donation. :-)
Load a 16x16 and 32x32 png in the same directory as png2ico, navigate to the directory in the command window, type
png2ico [destination filename].ico [file1] [file2]
. . . . and it's done.

OK, I will try that one but understand me
I have been almost taken in "garbage land" more that once while searching....
So coming from you, I believe that indeed it is clean.
However I am returning the compliment by asking:
Is there anyone of those for a fee?
I run a small biz and rather rely on something that I could own.
if not point me to a tutorial (including PHP if possible)
and I'll learn how to make my own favicon

I've used Microangelo. It will create desktop icons, pointers and I've used it for favicons.

I use Photoshop CS3
There is a free plug-in that works for Illustrator as well as Photoshop

Thanks all, appreciated your input
Anyone viewing this thread should follow Coopster's link, it reveals the .ico meat!

I use The GIMP - latest version gives you the various .ico options on Save As and the option of PNG compression.

Interesting; I sometimes use it too, got to upgrade.
As a matter of facts before starting this thread I looked for it in my Gimp (only about 18 months old) it was not a saving option

Name the file whatever.ico and Save - the .ico options window pops up.

you can get icons form snip it offer .ico type files download.
but if you want to use only as favicon for web site, it is a litter bigger.
