PNG and GIF images not displaying in IE for users that aren't administrators

All of a sudden, I have several XP SP3 users on our domain that cannot see PNG (e.g. Google logo) or GIF files in Internet Explorer 7. The problem resolves if I give the users local admin rights but reoccurs when I take the rights away. I have tried the fix from here but it didn't fix it. http://www.winhelponline.com/articles/202/1/PNG-images-are-not-displayed-on-Web-sites-in-Internet-Explorer.html

After removing admin rights and adding them back again, that fix is no longer working either.

shahzamm, I will try this as soon as I can get back on that computer. Any idea why this would be randomly changing on computers across their network?

Changing the permissions on that key works, any idea why this is randomly happening to all non-local administrators on their network?
