I just recently purchased a netbook with Windows 7 starter edition. Some websites I go to with this will show animated .gif files properly, but others will not. One example of a page that doesn't work correctly is http://www.preferencepools.com/about.htm where the second image should rotate through 4 pictures. This fails in both IE and Firefox, so I know it's not the browser. Anyone have any ideas why this might be failing? Thanks.
This could be symptomatic of an underpowered netbook.
Does the web page finish loading? Try placing the URL of the image directly into your browser's location bar to see what happens.
BTW, your link to about.htm points to the wrong target.
