Blank white screen when opening file

Specifically, in Illustrator. I try to open a saved PNG file from the Creative Cloud, and while Illustrator opens, there's nothing but a blank, white screen with the outline of the picture. 

 

This happens on my Mac with Big Sir 11.4 i7 and also on my Windows 10 laptop. Everything is up to date, and I've followed the instructions to rename certain directories to .old, and used the Adobe CC cleaner thing and reinstalled twice, as directed. 

 

Still nothing. This is frustrating, and unacceptable. And costing money. 

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Bizaare - no idea what was going on with that but all seems well now. Also, since I'm a complete noob, I'll further learn about the layers and links panel 🙂 

 

Thank you so much!

Please describe step by step qhat you are doing and what's happening.

Which version and system is it?

Where is the image located?

Does that happen with all PNGs or just with this one?

 

Also: a screenshot would be helpful.
