Windows Gadget has stopped working error!!

I get this error all the time during the day whether i'm playing a game, listening to music or surfing the web. It comes up with the error box and sometimes asks me to debug or restarts windows gadget entirerly, rearranging and moving my gadgets every time. I send information to windows every time it asks me too, but obviously nothing has come of it. Anyone have this problem or know of a fix in progress??

Thanks

Hi,

You could try Gadgets - Restore Default Gadgets to see if that helps. Also, are you using a 3rd party gadget when it fails?

Have you checked event viewer to see if there was any more info about the problem? It will tell you more about the nature of the specific problem. type event viewer in search and check the application in windows log.

Exact same event ID and source (100) and exception code I have. Have you had any other app stop working and windows says "app stopped working looking for a solution online"? That error code is related to a buffer overflow and one of its dependancies. In control panel>system> advanced settings (where you set page file size) the last panel has DEP. See what its set to.
