Rebooted today and, once again, gadgets are totally dead.
None appear on boot; gadget command off the desktop is non-responsive; and "restore gadgets" also does nothing (no window appears, no error is displayed, no gadgets.
andreibutilca can you point me to the source of "MS branded them as insecure" so I can read detail? I do love my gadgets and want this problem solved.

Hey,

I am really sorry the problem is back for you. As I posted above, I gave up my gadgets completely, as the hassle of maintaining them to a functioning state was not justified compared to the utility they brought to the table.

Here is the article: Microsoft Security Advisory: Vulnerabilities in Gadgets could allow remote code execution

Good luck and keep me posted if anything changes!
