Windows 7: Desktop Gadgets stopped working.


20 Feb 2011   #1

Win 7 Home Basic 32bit
 
 
Desktop Gadgets stopped working.

My desktop gadgets suddenly disappeared off my desktop. I can still call them up by
right clicking on the desktop and then clicking on gadgets - the panel with all the desktop icons appears but if I right click on any of the icons and click on 'Add', nothing
happens eg. the clock just opens a black square and nothing else.
(Win 7 Home Basic).
Can anybody assist with this problem?

Thanks.
