Weather gadget has turned flourescent pink.....

Yep, my weather gadget used to be normal looking. Now it is small and all flourescent pink.

Since this has happened I was sitting in my lazy boy chair, put the foot rest down and managed to come down on the edge of my laptop. Now I have a spiderweb on the monitor screen.....

Any ideas anyone?????
Thanks

This is caused by having Internet Explorer 11 installed and your screen text size set to more that 100%.

Since Microsoft has dropped support for gadgets, I doubt they will fix it.

I just upgraded from the RC to HP and forgot to backup my gadgets. I've gotten the rest of them, but I still can't find this weather gadget. I believe it was a custom made gadget which was originally in German. Would anybody happen to have the name of it? I'd greatly appreciate it. ...
