I don't want to insult you, so I will begin with asking if you have whatever graphics software that you are using currently installed?

Also, I don't want to take from the comments made by micro66 and sorgie, in your first question:

I will however, say that the comments about re-associating the files with the program (s) by using the content menu and selecting "OPENWITH". this will enable you to change to what ever program you feel with open the document , in addition to being able to select the program, you can make sure that it stays in that program by putting a check in the check box. Also, going under view and options and then the file type tab will give you what you are looking for in regards to being able to edit the files and changing the extensions to jpeg or which ever graphic file you are trying to go back to.

I hope that this helps.

Have you tried clicking on the file while using Windows Explorer?  Does a dialog box pop up "Open With" and a listing of applications?  If so, try
"iexplorer".  Then you should be able to view the Windows Explorer as web page.  

Note: you should make sure the uncheck the box that says "always use this program to open this file type", until you make sure it works.  Then you can try it on one file, if it works, go back and check that box and apply the settings to all of your .gif files.

I hope this helps out.
