Gadgets has stopped working - strange and tough problem ;/

Hello,

today I have changed my audio driver and after this my gadgets windows disappear + windows constantly showing me message "Gadgets has stopped working..." with no resolve info about this.

I've tried to resolve this problem a number of ways, including:
- restore gadgets installed with windows 7 (option within control panel) EACH TIME I click this option I am getting "Gadgets has stopped working"
- Registry edit (nothing chenged)
- Delate settings.ini (nothing changed)

When I click any options related to gadgets I am getting "Gadgets has stopped working"

What is wrong, how to repair it ?

Looks like you hav file corruptionproblem. I guess your Laptop did not have Windows Ultimate version pre installed. If you have installed the Ultimate version yourself where did your install disc come from?

Reinstall the version of windows that came with the pc, there should be a sticker on the pc with the keycode.

Most likely Home Premium 64 bit.

Because the type of problem that you are encountering can be the result of corrupted files on the installation disc! So they are almost impossible to repair without re installing !
