Default GIFs wont play

Using Win XP Pro, and IE6.

Animated GIFs wont play, they just show the first frame.

Even when I save one and open it from disk it doesnt play.

The "play animations" box is checked in Advanced Internet Options....

Any ideas?

My mate found a solution :-

I had Zonealarm blocking animated ads in the privacy options.

This even stopped forum avatars etc from moving.

Promptly disabled.

Thomas Dolby? Nah, dont know him.

If you are on about the name, then I got it from a U2 album.

Highly possible they got it from elsewhere though...
