Go to Control Panel-->Display, select the Desktop tab. Now, under the list of background files, click the "Customize Desktop..." button. From the newly opened window, choose the Web tab and click the New... button. Now click the Browse button to find the location of your animation. This way, you can add as many animations as you want to your desktop, and the limit is, of course, the size of your dektop. You can also move the aniumations around your desktop and place them where you want them.

Active desktop uses your Internet settings, so you need to enable animations in IE (tools > Internet Options > Advanced, scroll down to enable animations.

If that is set correctly, a number of programs will prevent animations. Programs like webfilters, ad filters and firewalls-- for example, zonealarm. You need to enable animated gifs in the programs preferences
