No i fixed it...

ACDSee Photo Manager 12. Honestly, the viewer got worse anyways. I like using a keyboard when it's Logical to use a keyboard.
Like when scrolling photos, has anyone figured the pattern for the scroll commands to magically become unselected while scrolling back and forth through your media?
And the New sound recorder has NOTHING!!!

For all of the Awesome that Windows 7 is, there are just a couple things that i wanna look at them and just say, "Why? Why us?"

gifview.exe
Set This as the default program to view gif images. It is written in GDI+, so you can expect the same level functionality as the onw in win XP. As it was written by me, I can taylor it to suit your needs. Source available on request
corango...I downloaded gifview and I ran it and it doesn't appear to do anything. With me Photoshop tries to open my ani gifs and it warns that it can only display one still frame. I have Windows 7 64 bit. Can you help?

I also have the Fastone Image Viewer but it lets black bleed through the ani gifs as they play! I have Windows 7 64 bit. Can you help?

Listen both O2B and john1069, gifview wont run directly.Jst keep it sumwhere in ur PC,right click on any .gif file,click properties,click change...(towards d right side of open with),click on browse...,now browse for gifview.exe that u have saved previously,click on OPEN and then OK.Now onwards,all ur .gif files wil open with gifview directly.
I think corgano would also hav replied d same way....

Hi,
Ok, I tried this and still nothing, so it must be me. I wished I could email you this animated GIF email and let you see what I'm trying to tell, but I know that won't happen, so oh well...
Thanks for all the help in trying to figure things out.

Hi John, I downloaded the Faststone image viewer (Freeware) and set the file association tick box in the Faststone settings to include GIFS (little tick box just click it). Now all my ani gifs open flawlessly with Faststone which also does slide shows and organizes photos. (And it opens gifs fast) Here's the link

FastStone Image Viewer - Powerful and Intuitive Photo Viewer, Editor and Batch Converter

It works perfectly with Windows 7 64 bit also.

@luchelibre

This is because autoit uses PE compression to make the exe smaller. The antiviruses detect this and give a fake positave.

May I point out that even though 6 said it was bad, 34 said it was good? That is a 12.333% chance that it is a virus, and a 88.666% chance it is safe. Think about it
