The non-Microsoft solution.

I've got a similar, albeit different, problem. All images display correctly, except .png-images, which give the red-cross (right-click>properties on the link to see the type of the image). All settings are correct, png is supported in IE since many years, nothing specific to be found and it happens with IE 5.5 on both my machines (Windows 95 and Windows 98), albeit in different ways if you try the details.
Surprisingly, I noticed this week the same problem on a Windows 2000/IE6 computer at school, which are supposed to be clean and well-managed.
The work-around: go to www.mozilla.org and download firefox 1.0. It might very well display all the pictures you like. If so, consider using it as your preferred browser. And if it doesn't help: nothing lost. You might even prefer using firefox above IE for its tabbed windows, some nice add-ons, its speed, its build-in popup-blocker, its lesser proneness to malware or - like some of us - just because it is a non-Microsoft product.
Hope this helps and let us know.
