Default "Can't determine type" error message in Photo Editor

Hello all. Microsoft Photo Editor on an an XP and on a win 2k machine both
get the message "Can't determine type" when trying to open a particular .gif
file. Tried opening the file in Microsoft Paint and couldn't do that either.
Other gif files open in Photo editor with no problem. I searched high and low
on the Internet for answers but didn't come close. All responses are greatly
appreciated

Can you open the file in another program?
Try www.irfanview.com , it is free and excellent. Get the plug-ins too, some image
formats need the plug-ins to view.
