Great Desktop Gadgets for Seven

I noticed some forums have stickies of things like best free software for windows 7, etc

How about one of best/favorite gadgets? Ive noticed looking at some peoples screenshots, that there are some very cool gadgets out there. And it's not always easy to find some of the ones in peoples screenshots.

So, any chance of a Stickied Gadget thread?

My desktop gadgets were working fine until now I cant even change the settings i.e. when I click on the link to change desktop gadgets absolutely nothing happens. However, I can close already installed gadgets, but of course cant get them back now. Any one else had a similar problem?
