I just ran head first into a BSOD last Thursday. Couldnt fix it, ended up having to do a complete reinstall of Windows 7. When I went to the gadgets page to go put back the ONE gadget I use religiously (Black & Dark notes) it was gone. GRRR.....spent the last two days scouring the forums, Bing, Microsoft to no avail. Finally, duh (smack forehead here) I looked in my windows.old file in my Downloads folder and sure enough.....there it was. (I know when you're downloading stuff it tells you just to hit the run button but I always save instead and then Run). In this instance.......it saved my favorite gadget. Just thought I'd give my two cents.....maybe it will help someone in the future.
