Okay, now I'm confused again. I just downloaded another gadget (sushi drive info), and it just gave me two folders and two images. Nothing with a "gadget" extension. How do I load it?

What are the names of the files/folders? Include their extension. (The part after the "dot", as in .exe, etc.)

It looks like you downloaded some of the components of the web page, not the actual file. Can you link to the site where you got it?

It worked fine for me. If you are using a download manager it might be causing a problem.

See if this link is better:
