Windows 7: Gadgets Loading Problem

Gadgets Loading Problem


About once every week or so, some of (but others are O.K.) my Gadgets won't load.
Not always the same ones with the problem.

After a few re-boots, all O.K. again.

Any ideas why ?

Anything I can do, or check out, or... ?

Yeah it's annoying - I get that. Sometimes r click desktop view gadgets toggle on/off fixes it and is quicker than reboot. Not a cure but . . .

I think it happens to most people sometimes. Not that often for me. You might also add a Restart Explorer shortcut on your right click context menu (helpful to have regardless) and se if restarting Explorer when the problem occurs helps.

Explorer - Add "Restart Explorer" to Desktop Context Menu
