When you click the download link, a page opens with the download, just un-check the "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" box. You'll get the zip file that you want. My Avast keeps blocking the site/file so I just disabled. After download I checked using VirusTotal and comes up clean.

WARNING: this no longer comes as a direct download of the zip, but as an executable downloader which downloads the zip, but in the process you have to decline installation of about four different annoyanceware toolbars and addons. Also the downloader itself is not portable; it leaves folders in AppData.

i think LiquidIcon XP is one of the best:

This editor is AWESOME!!! I've tried IcoFX a few times in the past with terrible results. Moments after trying this one...instant success! Simple and easy to use. I've made tons of icons since I downloaded this the other day. (Made a bunch for my Linux machine as well.) Cheers to GIEP! would you pronounce :)

I use this a bunch. Can't seem to get this 3.1 version. All links seem to be busted. Still, I can make do with 3.0

Yep, works now, thanks.

@gms9810: Thanks! Fixed both website and download links.

It's a dead link, at least when I tried it three times.
