Windows 7: Gadgets moving after restart

Gadgets moving after restart

Hi,

I have moved my taskbar to the left of my screen and placed a gadget in the bottom right corner. My problem comes after a reboot.

The gadget moves, I think its because it tries to move it from under where the taskbar would be if I had it on the bottom. If anybody can help me fix this please post back.



Thanks in advance

I'm suffering from the same problem. I believe it's because I use an external monitor with my laptop at work. The screen resolution automatically changes depending on which monitor/TV I connect it to. This tends to screw up the gadget location. I'm still searching for a fix. Let me know if you find one.
