    I had the same problem today (6/4/2008). I installed Windows XP SP3 and
    reinstalled the latest version of IE7 and everything works fine.

    Excellent, that fixed it for my XP system -- I had tried adding the .png
    classes key to HKCU but that didn't do it and a regmon for iexplore didn't
    show anything, but this fixed it.

    The link is broken ! is there any chance if any1 gets to upload it again ?

    Anyhow surely it's a Registry issue and has nothing to do with UAC as when
    you run IE with elevated privilages it would use administrator's registry
    subsets that are untouched and working find !
    IMO, turning UAC off is not a good workaround as lowers the system
    security, anyhow just letting IE run as an elevated user would be a better
    workaround.

    I've faced this problem a few times and I solved it using Sytem Restore
    (and when not possible) by installing a Codec Pack and removing broken codecs
    plus some registry tweaks ! But this time i've tried all of them with no luck
    at all !
    Hope your registry tweak works or I'll have 2 perform a clean installation !

    This problem, apparently caused by ownerless registry keys, has also
    plagued Vista.

    It's been a long time since your last post, but wonder if you still look at
    this thread? I've been working with the same problem for months. (Running XP
    Home, SP2/SP3, NAV, two users with administrator privileges.) Like you, I
    tried all the suggestions (except yours) so far. Went to SP3 last week, but
    the .png rex x remained. I've got to believe it's directly related to IE7
    since everthing renders fine in Firefox. I also don't believe Quicktime is
    the proximate cause, since I've never downloaded it. But it does seem to be
    related to other programs, and there may be many that can trigger the
    probllem.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if your wholesale permissions change created any
    problems in any other areas. I've got some strange ownership entries
    (including my security ID) on numerous IE7 keys, but nothing seems amiss
    except the .png problem. I'm ready to turn to your solution if all has been
    OK this long. Hope you're still around. Thanks.

    Good to know, I guess. Got any insight into what keys? Thanks.

    No. I just remember that there were quite a few threads about this,
    after Vista came out.

    Try something here:


    Open the Run box and enter: regsvr32 %WinDir%\system32\pngfilt.dll

    Get a registry fix file here (XP and Vista):
    PNG images are not displayed on Web sites in Internet Explorer
    http://www.winhelponline.com/articl...played-on-Web-sites-in-Internet-Explorer.html

    Internet Explorer doesn't display PNG images even though your web page claims it supports PNG. What's up with that?

    Hi ju.c

    On registering pngfilt.dll, I always get the following message:
    c:\windows\system32\pngfilt.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry
    point was not found. The file cannot be registered.

    I have also tried Ramesh's fix and the other sites listed to no avail. But
    thanks anyway. Got any other suggestions: I'd appreciate them.

    I have the similar problem when I using the HTML help workshop to compile a
    help file which contains multiple web pages and images like PNG, BMP, JPG and
    GIF. When I run the help, the images are blanked out, except BMPs, with a red
    x. Try on other machine with similar Xp OS, problem continues. But It work
    perfectly well if I run it in another computer with Vista Ultimate running.

    I guess it is the IE causing the problem, how can I fix this.

    Thanks

    I have tried those method, problem persisted.

    The fact is that the IE does display the images when I browse them page by
    page, which were generated by Word 2003. When I attemp to run the the
    compiled .chm help file, it shows only a placeholder in the place of an
    image.

    Please kindly suggest a solution.
