I recently got a 64-bit Windows 7 Gateway laptop, but Windows Desktop Gadgets suddenly stopped working a few days ago. I have tried everything - it's not the UAC. Whenever I try to open the gadgets, it begins to crash and Windows closes the program. System Restore didn't help for some reason, even after I went back father than the day the this problem first occurred (I checked the Event Viewer). I haven't installed any other programs recently either. I even erased the settings.ini file for destop gadgets, and it still didn't work. I have isolated the problem to the weather gadget. Every other gadget works (after erasing settings.ini), but the weather gadget causes it to crash. Any suggestions?
