ok, to be more specific, animated gifs will not "animate". I've tried enabling them under tools but they still won't work.


Frogs fart!?

well technically it's just a gif then if it's not animated seriously... what do you mean by tools? are you trying to animate one yourself or trying to make them animate in say internet explorer?

Bad luck with women?

Do you mean you're trying to view a gif in IE and it's not moving? Is this banana stuck?

Umm... SP2 didn't disable my animations. That option is there on my pre-SP2 box as well.

But you're probably right that he has that check box turned off. Just saying that SP2 won't turn it off automatically.

If you have ZoneAlarm, it can prevent animations from showing.
