my application icon looks ugly-like a paper and i would like to change it to something like globe icon or any suitable image.Am programming using visual studio 2005 and the program is written in somebody save me ?

You can download icons from any free icon repository on the internet.

Then go the project properties and select the Application tab.
There you can see a dropdown box called Icon. Select <Browse...> from the list and select the icon image you just downloaded.

Aaaand, your done. :)
