Windows 7: Currency gadget stuck at "Getting data"

Currency gadget stuck at "Getting data"

Hello

Suddenly the original windows currency converter gadget has stuck in diplaying "Getting data..."
I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, deleting the cache folder, recovering the gadget from acronis which I had a clone of my OS didnt help either.
I thought maybe it has to do with the msn site which sends the currency data.
My weather and all other gadgets update normally.
Does anyone else experience the same problem?
Any help?
Thanks

I uninstalled and reinstalled all my gadgets. It seems that something was stuck. Everytime I was unistalling and reinstalling only the currency gadget I couldn't fix it but I thought to try the same with all the others and then I reinstalled all of them with currency being last.
Tell me if you did it.
Good luck!
