Hi microsoft removed the gadget gallery, to focus on windows 8 and help stop malware. There are plenty of programs that can replace this however.
1. Rainmeter : Rainmeter, desktop customization tool
2. Yahoo widgets : Yahoo! Widgets
3. Pokki : https://www.pokki.com/ (More of an app store for your computer)
I personally recommend rain meter, but if you want something more similar to windows default gadgets, i think yahoo would be the way to go.

It IS a bummer. I'd like a stock ticker, to be honest. My Vista laptop has one and it works just fine, but I can't find a similar one for 7.
