    I can open *.png files with NS and Opera, no problem there.
    I updated Internet Explorer from version 5 to 6 (I couldnt open *.png files with 5 either).
    Everything is up to date, any ideas what to do?

    TIA,

    The PNG graphic format isn't widely supported in browsers atm.

    Try getting SP1 for ie6.
    Or, a reasonably advanced graphic editor, i.e. Fireworks, Photoshop etc.

    What, exactly, happens when you try to open a *.png file with ie6?

    This is one of the *many* reasons why I scrapped IE and got opera and k-meleon. IE sucks for png support use a different browser if possible.

    Wish I could help. But IE opens .png files fine for me.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
