Windows 7: Can I move Gadgets from computer to computer?

Can I move Gadgets from computer to computer?

Well, I installed the new SSD, and did a fresh install of Win7 and everything went well...KINDA

We have had WeatherBug's gadget on Winders for quite a while now, but WeatherBug.Com's download link does not work.

My other Win7 machines have it. Is there a way I can copy it?

Is there a site [still] out there for widgets?

Thank you

To answer your question though, you should be able to copy the folder with the gadget to your other computer.
