Windows 7: Gadgets Disappear after Windows Update

Ok, I uninstalled all updates for that day, even Adobe Flash...uninstalled the gadgets and reinstalled them and they still don't work....I guess a good old reformat will do the trick!...lol

Might try to run the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Or do a Repair Install

Repair Install

Yeah, Thanks! But I just formatted Sunday....Tried everything but what you just posted, so I'm not sure if that would have worked or not...Thank you for the help!...So far, with updates, it's working...so I don't know what the issue was...

Well, that is the ultimate fix. Suggest looking into a 2nd hard drive, and an imaging program like Acronis True Image, or the free Macrium Reflect. Having complete images is the ultimate insurance against such a problem, or a nasty infection. Glad you are back to normal though

Yeah, I suppose you're right. I have 4 internal HDD's all for storage, and I also have Acronis....I just never liked to use it..But I probably should....

Some gadgets no longer working

Mmh I have the exact same issue:
Other gadgets are still working, but "All CPU meter" and "Outlook Appointments" gadgets are broken since this morning. To my knowledge I didn't get any updates yesterday, so i have absolutely no idea what might have gone wrong.
Tried all the above except reinstall (not an option for me) and they still won't work

I uninstalled Flash player too...someone mentioned to wait for an updated All CPU Meter and others...I didn't want to...it was easier for me to just re-install...If you find out what caused it, please let me know....The only thing I can think of, is a corrupt update or a conflict with the updates and gadgets....but for now, everything is perfect again..
