I have both Mozilla FireFox .8 and IE 6 sp1, but the problem is, I can view gif images on websites, but if I save to my hard drive, the system can't read it, I can't save images I make on paint as gif to make gif animation, and I simply can't save as gif!

there is no Gif choice when I try to save as, and if I save it from the internet, I can't view it!

you cannot save as a gif file in the older versoins of Paint, you may want to look for a newer version.

This is very easily solved and should not make you so concerned.
I'll bet they work ok in My Documents/My pictures.
Might not be a W98 option,i have W Me.
But theres many free viewers.get Irfanview at most dl sights.

something seems drastically amiss, you should try re-installing the editor apps that you are trying to use. Failing that you might do best to start again with windows, there is clearly some key components missing.
