Yes it is true many Gadgets depend on IE (Internet Explorer) to work properly for accessing the Internet. Especially our SevenForums Gadget

Windows 7 Home Premium 64

I read all this and what I have is still not working. I have gadgets that monitor the "dollar value" and it works. Other like Oil Price Monitor and Weater Gadget do not. Any ideas? thanks...
