Windows 7: Gadgets problems: All cpu meter, network meter and ilMeteo not work!

Gadgets problems: All cpu meter, network meter and ilMeteo not work!

Hello!
I also have problems with this gadget. I install it, but do not charge anything. It remains a white box that shows the following thing: <! . It is not the only gadget I have problems with: Network meter also does not load and shows the same thing: <! . Another gadget that I have problems with it is ilMeteo, but the problem is different. Here is a screen of my desktop:




1 is the gadget ilMeteo, 2 is the gadget of all cpu meter and 3 meter network. Of course I installed core temp. Apart from these gadgets, the others all work (so far).
Here's how I tried to solve the problem:
I used the command prompt type the following commands (Open an advanced command prompt -> choose Run as administrator Type the following and press Enter after each):

regsvr32 msxml3.dll

regsvr32 scrrun.dll

regsvr32 jscript.dll

Restart PC, it did not work
I used WinFix: Restore the Windows Sidebar and restarting, but it did not work
I disabled the UAC and it did not work
I have done scandisk and even this worked
I edited the registry entry Sidebar, giving all permissions to my account but even that worked!
What can I do?! This problem may be due to the fact that having a monitor 23 "use a resolution of 135 DPI?
Thank you all!

Gadget Problem

I don't think it is a monitor problem. The one I have on my Blackbird with a large Dell monitor is still fine. It's my Thinkpad laptop that it stopped working on after more than 2.5 years. My problem is the same as everyone else who has described it here. It is only with the one gadget and I have tried all the suggested fixes. So I guess it is goodbye forever to ALL CPU Meter you piece-o-crap

RDA,

Is it a specific, some, or all gadgets this is happening with? Could you post a screenshot of this to see if anything may stand out?

I have a 64 bit OS. Does that mean I have to change the commands when I run the elevated cmd?

If so, can anyone tell me what commands do I have to enter.

No, the commands in the tutorial above work in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7. The problem seems to be as you said with that website and it's outdated gadgets on it. You might see if you may be able to find the gadget you wanted from here instead. They should work for you without issue.
