Windows 7: Windows Gadget has stopped working error!!

07 Jun 2009   #11

Windows 7 Build 7229 x86

I dont get it for anything other than gadgets. I either get an error message saying its restarting gadgets or i get an error message saying they have stopped working and i sent info to microsoft. My DEP is set as Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

I dont think sidebar is "essential" My dep is broken (greyed out). Im just to lazy to re-install from back up right now. there is a thread (search for it) that describes the various options you can set DEP to. There is a /noexecute you can run in CMD. BUT read about it first. It can be crippling. If I remember where the thread ( or info) is i will PM the link. You can also look more closely in event viewer and if it evergave you a BSOD save the memory dump. There are people here who can diagnose it.

Good luck hope it helpedsomewhat
