    you could open the gifs in internet explorer to see them work

    remember animated gifs are a series of photos - so you need to look at each photo
    here are some free editors

    and on some applications , like photoshop and gimp , they are seen as layers

    what exactly do you need to do with the Gif ?

    And ..... What is your computers default viewer for a gif file ?????
    All My Pictures open in Irfanview unless I choose a different program, and I see animated gifs.
    There are 3 programs in my > right click > open with > list that will not view animated gifs as being animated.
