hmm strange. I know that with iexplore 6 had and issue with png files but i cannot find something related to iexplore 7.

Do you have all latest updates installed? Is it possible to upgrade to iexplore 8?

Yes. It could be possible to update to IE8, but i would like to avoid to do this until I realized where the problem lies.

Are there any 3rd party security software installed on your system?
Did you recently installed QuickTime?

Use the following command to confirm file associations
On a command prompt type: ftype | find /i "png"
You should get something like this:
pngfile=rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1

Again on a command prompt type: regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll

Another (silly imho) suggestion is to enable the Auto-Select encoding option.
On Page menu point to "Encoding" click auto select.

Finally if nothing of the above helps you solve the problem consider updating to the latest patches/updates available.

Security software: AVG File server Edition 9.0. No setting change from june 2010
QuickTime is not installed on the server.

ftype | find /i "png"  >> Ok
regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll >> Ok
Another (silly imho) suggestion is to enable the Auto-Select encoding option. >> Ok
Finally if nothing of the above helps you solve the problem consider updating to the latest patches/updates available.  >> IE 7.0.5730.11 fully updated.

The problems remain...
Do you think the java's update could be a cause? From the log file the last java update is dated 05 november at 10.00 PM and from monday i have problem whit png file....

I dont know if java update could cause such problem. You could always do the updates and see if that helps.

Also can you try disabling avg just to test if this changes something.

From a user account that has no admin rights can you try another browser (eg firefox)?
