Windows 7: how to apply .png to folders and taskbar in 7/vista

how to apply .png to folders and taskbar in 7/vista

hi to all...
i have come across a very strange thing,i want to know,do u people have solution for it...
if u people use rocketdock,u will know that it is possible to add both .png and .ico files as icons to any icon in rocketdock n even in any other dock.
but when it comes to add some folder icon in any folder,in its customization,it only accepts .ico files n cant apply .png, and same is the case in windows 7 when i was making a shortcut to make it attached on taskbar,and i had so many pretty icons in my collection but most of them are in .png and they are not applied.
i used various converters and online website converters for converting .png to .ico but in most cases,its size gets reduced,even if u make it full big and it is not full big as it was in png...
anyone know,how to apply .png files to any folder and taskbar...
