Default Problems with .gif files.

Downloading .gif files works fine. The only .gif files I save are the ones of animations, not still pictures such as those of jpg. bmp. etc. Like I said, I can save the files just fine, but as for opening the files, as in those that can 'play' the animation, I Cannot do this. All 'animation' .gifs I have saved cannot be 'played'. Is there anything out there to fix this? Is this an All-Vista problem?



I'm currently running Windows Home Premium -64 bit.

Certainly it's not a Vista exclusive problem. Do you have any problems seeing those gifs on web pages ? and what do you use to view them locally when they don't behave.?

It might be a file association problem.

Doesn't seem to be an association problem. Good thought though BurrWalnut.

Cyclic, there are no problems viewing them on web pages themselves. As far as opening them locally, I suppose I can just as easily get by by using a web browser to view them.
