Animated GIF Desktop Background
I remember when I had Windows XP Pro, I was able to set my Animated GIFs as
Desktop Bacgrounds. I tryed the same thing in Windows Vista, but the GIF does
not move. Is there some possible way to enable this feature or something like
that?
Thanks in Advance,

No.
There is a free, open source program that will run animated images as desktop wallpaper. But it will only run images that were created specifically for it. The program is: Drempels, and it is also a screensaver, it can be downloaded from: Drempels Screensaver Home. Your destop must be set to 16 bit color for the program to work, and although the author says only that it is for Windows up to and including Win 2000, it will also work in Vista.
