    I'm not sure if gif files work in Paint. But as far as the Picture Viewer is concerned try this -

    Right click on a gif file with the Shift key pressed. You'll get an extra option Open With... Select that and a small window will open. From that select the Picture Viewer application, check the box titled Always use this program to open this type of file. Click on OK!


    You can download one of the best Free image viewer programs -

    Irfan View - www.irfanview.com
