IE11 and gadgets

I uninstalled IE11 because it ruined my gadgets. IE10 is no option because it blows up in my system. So I am back to IE9 which is starting to be inconvenient because many sites don't support it any more.

My question is whether anybody found gadgets that work with IE11. The one I really need is the CPU meter. I can live without the analog clock and the weather gadget.

Good new is, I got the pack. Bad news is, it does not work with IE11 on Windows 7. Will try 8.1 and 10 later. But on 7 I am back to square 1.

IE10 does not work at all on my system - it produces a BSOD. And IE9 is too old for some websites. They don't support it any more.

Which machine is this ?
Is it a 64 bit if so have you tried enhanced protection mode ?
What you using for security
Post your startup list
Your not showing a graphic's card in your system spec's which some do require software rendering,
Odd that ie11 works at all if ie10 doesn't :/

Have you ever posted the bsod logs ?

Mike, it's not worth pursuing it. I have 4 other browsers that I can use. And pretty soon I will be on 10 where things work.
