This requires a special animated gif control (I can't find a link to it right now), or you could try showing it in the webbrowser control.

If you are using the webbrowser do the following
Place the WebBrowser where you want the gif to show
In this case it is being shown in the form load event
Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim FileName As String
FileName = "Full path and name of the gif file"

WebBrowser1.Navigate FileName
