Is there a setting to fix this? No problem at all with jpgs.
(W7 32 on newly built box with 4 gigs ram)
Can you check and see what program is the PNG associated with ? Just right click on any of the PNG file and go to properties there see what Program its set to open with ?
Try to change it to Widows Photo viewer see whether any improvement is there
Hope this helps
