Animated GIF for Desktop

Hi All You Techies

I have a little animated gif that I would like to place in the corner of my daughters desktop.
Not as wallpaper or as background just as a little animation sitting in the corner................How Do I Do It???

Many thanks

If it's Windows 98 she's using, try this, 140550. click here scroll down a bit.

You can also do it in XP, by going to Control Panel > Display > Desktop tab and browsing for your animated gif, choosing it and click Apply and OK to exit, but I think XP will only allow you to place it in the middle of the desktop.

Thanks MAJ

She's running XP Pro.....I've tried all ways....Either I get Centre or tiled gif at the expense of loosing all other desktop settings(eg. cleartype and shadowing )....or as a web view I loose wallpaper and or appearance.
All I'm after for her is her original Desktop with this little gif planted in the corner and possibly moveable with click and drag.

Anyone have any ideas?
