I put icons in the taskbar of my own choosing to bring up certain
programs. However, many programs then use their own favicons to
replace my icons. How can I stop this practice of the icon replacement
by favicons? I use XP professional.

Just to be clear,
A user cannot add shortcuts (which have icons, and which I
assume is what you mean by 'icons') to the Taskbar itself.
A user can add shortcuts, with their respective icons, to the
Quick Launch Toolbar, which you may have opened as a component
located on the Taskbar.
Assuming that's the case, you can right-click on the shortcut
icon, select Properties, and, at the bottom-right of the Shortcut
tab of the resulting dialog window, there's a button labelled
'Change Icon'. By clicking on that, you can navigate to the
.dll or .exe file that contains the icon you'd prefer to use.
Changes to personal settings such as these should then be
saved automatically when you shut down (unless XP Pro has made
a change), and preserved when you reboot.
Let me know if this satisfies your interests and I'll post it
as an answer, or, if something's not clear, let me know...
