If anyone is still reading this, they just updated this gadget a day or two ago. You might want to get the latest version.

I had the same problem with the latest update, but Rob1234's solution fixed it. After changing Computer Defaults to the Microsoft Windows option, I was able to reset it to my preferred options and the meter still works. A screwy bug.

Go to Internet Properties - Programs - Internet Program (set programs) - and reset Program Access and Computer Defaults to the Microsoft Windows option.

Hope this will be of help to others

Thank you Rob very much for posting this fix.. I suspect this broke when iTunes installed Goggle Chrome. I am so tired of crapware just getting dumped on my system.... Now If I can figure out why Defrag deletes all my restore points I'll be a happy camper. Thanks again
