Welcome to Seven Forums MrBushido25. Let attack this in steps. First go to Turn windows features on or off:

Windows Features - Turn On or Off

Scroll down to Windows gadget platform, uncheck it and reboot.

Now navigate to

C:\users\(User name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets

Where (User name) is your user name. Delete the folder for intel CPU meter by orbmu2k. Go back to turn windows features on or off, and put a check mark back next to Windows Gdget Platform, and again reboot.

If everything is normal, you are done. If you still have gadget problems, you can restore the default Windows 7 gadgets:

Gadgets - Restore Default Gadgets

If you still have problems, note the exact error codes, and let us know and we can go from there. A Guy
