I have CS4, but never use illustrator. I downloaded some free icons from here: http://www.freeiconsweb.com/free-stock-iconset.html

It is an adobe ai file with all the icons on one "page" so to speak.

How do I export them (preferably as a batch) so they are all PNG?

What you will have to do is to is to put every icon on a separate layer.

Then go and get a script through this link (read the text there) : http://hicksdesign.co.uk/journal/more-illustrator-export-scripts

To move an icon to a new layer in Illustrator:

Open the Window > Layers panel.

There is a little icon in the bottom right corner. Hold down the Alt key while you click this icon. This action will give you a dialog box to name your new layer.

Select the first icon. You will see a colored dot in the Layers panel. Take that dot and move it to the new Layer.

Etc..
