Are you creating the gifs yourself or copying off the web?

Where are you viewing them? You need to view them in a viewer which is compatible with animating them. Some programs e.g. I suspect MS Paint will open them as a single static image.

Are you trying to edit them?

They worked if I opened thru Windows Media Player,selecting 'All Files' under File Type.

My thanks goes to the 2 respondants

Should work in IE as well and if you download (suspect lots of them are free) an animated gif editing program.
