I have it on Windows 7 x64 SP1. It seems OK for me.

ok, it runs fine on my laptop with windows 7 pro too...

So your windows install is either corrupt or you have some software installed that prevents it from working.

My install is fine, I just fixed some corrupt files and Win updates. Which program may be causing the problem?

Umm, my first guess would be Norton Internet Security...

After that, it could be related to any image viewing / editing software, which might have conflicting DLLs / DLL versions installed.

But you know how vague a remote guess at someone's software list is...

I do commend you for your restraint on software installs, I think my installed list goes to 5 times that... but I'm terrible anyway, my machine doesn't get rebooted for months on end...

(The one and only thing in favor of Windows 8 I can think of: it puts up with that pretty well)

I installed SageThumbs again. I can see a preview in the explorer context menu, but not animated. I see no preview in Explorer unless I turn on the Preview pane, but still no animation.

Ahh, I did it right then.
The OP is wanting to have animated ones ala XP.

I noticed. I don't have many animated gifs (In fact only one, my avatar). I installed it primarily to get thumbnails of things like wmf, psd, xcf and pdn files.

Yeah I was all happy that I finally found someone who answered the thread properly, and tried Sagethumbs, but it doesn't work. My windows already previewed the files fine, they just stopped animating in Windows 7 like they did in XP. Sagethumbs does not solve this then?

Welcome to Seven Forums kneel23. I don't think we have found a solution to this problem yet. As stated above Sage thumbs doesn't work.
