Thanks for the suggestions maxseven. I've tried those but none of them seem to work.

Hmmm, never dragged a gadget before. What happens if you just double click the gadget in the list?

I never doubled clicked a gadget before. Lol.

When I double click it I don't have the duplicate weather gadget, but the options don't work. Like if I change the weather zip code to my area it won't change, it just remains at it's default area.

In your 1st post you said you ran the SFC. Did it say no errors found, or found errors that couldn't be corrected?

When I ran SFC /scannow, it said that there were corrupted files that couldn't be repaired.

Ahhh, ok. Revisit Brink's Tutorial, and note this:

Quote:
If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time. Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command 3 or more times to completely fix everything that it's able to.
Also note the Tip near the bottom about extracting files directly from the install dvd to replace corrupted files.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

That is a problem HS, you need to focus on that next, instead of the Gadget issue.

I've ran it about 10 times now, and its still showing the same thing. I've tried using repair using the Windows installation disk, but it doesn't read my Windows installation. Does an SSD have anything to do with that? I'll continue running SFC /scannow but if there's any other alternative solutions to this problem, it''ll be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

If you run it and it won't correct the issues, I'd say a Repair Install may be your best choice:
