Matt, please try it with this PNG file first and if it does not work use the BMP file.

I dont think you can replace BMP files with Png's I think it has to be Bitmap's
edit: Testing them now... Png now tested no luck You cant even choose a png file (pic 2) and if you select all files option this comes up (pic 1)
edit2: It still does that with the black when you move your mouse over it.
