Welcome to the Seven Forums
You cannot set a animated .gif as a background image and expected to be animated. You would need to do something like this DreamScene - Install in Windows 7 and Vista VLC is capable of doing it also.

No you won't be able to use a .gif image you will have to use a compatible video format like .MPG and .WMV
