    if you are using photoshop, open the icon and click the white area around it using the magic wand tool, then click delete. Save it as a .png and then it'll work

    Yeah I am using photoshop but when I make the icon the backround is transparent. Then when I save it it becomes white.

    Are you sure you select "Interlaced" while saving?

    Press image, trim..., transparent pixels, and okay. Make sure you save it as a png.
