This is:
GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt6.0.6002) of 2009-07-29 on SOFT-MJASON
This is the basic precompiled Windows binary. It contains only Emacs and the libxpm library (this is an exception to the general rule that third party components are not included, since correct display of the toolbar and splash screen depends on it).

on the other hand, i was able to open png or jpg files using emacsW32
GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt6.0.6002) of 2009-06-30 on LENNART-69DE564 (patched)
That distribution of Emacs comes with a lot of third party tools that are useful alongside Emacs. Things like the image libraries, binaries of GNU find, grep, diff etc. If you still have that installed, adding the directory where all those tools are located to your system PATH will allow them to be used by both versions of Emacs.

Not sure what you mean updating libpng, since this is on Windows, i presume any png lib is included in emacs... or, humm... does this mean if i don't have libpng program installed separated on Windows then emacs won't open image files?

Yes. Suitable binaries for the image libraries and more are available from gnuwin32.sourceforge.net
