Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
Gadgets just DONT work anymore!

A few days ago my Clock, CPU Moniter and RIVA Tuner Gadgets just crashed on my desktop, they wouldnt dsiplay and only showed boxes and outlines.
I removed them.
When I tried to put them back I got the same Problem, none of my gadgets are displaying properly and I have NO idea why.
I restarted and tried again same problem

Someone please help. I feel so limited without a CPU Load and Temp guage on my PC

I run Win 7 Ultimate 64Bit on a 4GHz Quad with 16Gigs of RAM and a GTX570 so it cant be a hardware problem

You could also try going to Control Panel - Programs and features - Turn Windows features on or off. Disable and enable it (restarting the computer after each).
