Windows 7: Windows Gadgets Fail To Install

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Windows Gadgets Fail To Install

I just upgraded to the latest build, and I finally decided to check these gadgets out. The only problem that i got is i am unable to add ANY new gadget from Windows Live Gallery .

All my programs in my D drive(2nd HD), and i edited the registry to make D my default "D:\Program Files". I am not sure if that is the issue, but I know most people dump all their files on the Windows drive.

Anyone else with my type of setup please help out.

My pics go left to right, as the order. Hopefully they help.

Thanks for your time.

Do you have UAC turned off by any chance?

Funny thing, i read something about that and i did turn it on before i made the PSR movie. And now i found this Regedit fix, but i am going to wait and see what comes up here.
