A few recommendations follow:

For GIF viewers on PCs:
1. VUIMG (the most stable program as a GIF viewer)
2. CSHOW (almost as good as VUIMG)
3. VPIC (good automatic slide shows, but the pictures are not as good as TGIF)
4. TGIF (the best viewer, but crashes on some big GIF files)

For GIF editors on PC:
1. TGIF (the best one)
