Strange Problem with gadgets

Hello everyone,
My desktop gadgets play up a lot, sometimes when I open a new window or application, my desktop gadgets stay on top of the window and won't go away unless I close them and open them again, or resize the gadget that is playing up.

This problem is tolerable, but gets quite tedious when the problem reoccurs lots.
Thanks in advance for any solutions or feedback

EDIT: here is an example image (notice Always on top is not selected)

No, I'll try that next time thanks
Do you know what causes it? Or is it just a glitch in the programming?

I would say its a glitch. As I said it happens to me maybe once a week. I did not consider it a problem.

That is not quite the problem, when I click somewhere off the gadget, the gadget stays there, thanks anyway

I know your answer its your ram. You have barely the minimum. If it were my computer, I would turn off aero, gadgets and all other window dressing. Your computer cannot do it all.
1.5 GB cannot do everything at once.
