Internet Explorer 6 unable to view PNG file.


My computer is running Win98 SE. I have IE6 installed in my computer but the problem is my IE cannot see the PNG files on website that I visit. I've already update my IE to service pack 1. but it still didn't work..I download few IE6 patches but it give me an error such as: Must install IE6 before install the patch file.

Can somebody help me?

I would recommend using IE7 instead :-)

Web sites can use the DirectX IE hack to show PNG images:
