Problems with clock gadget

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum and windows 7. I downloaded some of the custom clocks from this website (btw, thanks for the nice clocks) and had no problems installing them. After running one of them I noticed that I was unable to change the face of the clock, so I removed that particular clock from the desktop and replaced it with the default clock that came with windows. To my surprise, the default clock would not let me change faces either. I have tried all of the 4 clock gadets currently installed and none of them allow me to change the face of the clock. The options window comes up and I can scroll through the available faces, but when i click the "OK" button nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi jsettoon, and welcome to SevenForums

Have a look at this thread: Gadgets disappear after I re-boot. I have to add back in the gadgets even though I have selected view gadgets on desktop. i have tried re-boot, re installed gadgets etc but still have no joy (Ctrl+F "clock face" ought to help as it's a long one!)

Let me know if you find a solution there.

Cheers,

Walker

Thanks WalkerA,
I was able to delete the windows sidebar folder in C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\
and reinstall the gadgets. That fixed the problem. Thanks again.
