Coudn't find countdown gadgets!!

Hi there,
Previously I was using Google desktop gadgets, they were amazing and fantastic. However I formatted my laptop and when I tried to reinstall all gadgets that I had, I couldn’t find any!! It seems that Google stopped sponsoring “Google Desktop” and all gadgets have been disappeared!!
Even windows 7 sidebar has quit limited number of gadgets, for example I couldn’t find Countdown, Timer, Stopwatch gadgets...
Could anyone tell me where I can find such things,
Many thanks,

Thank you so much "Derekimo", but the one I was using is very easy to set, i.e. there are buttons for 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes,… (short task durations). So you do not have to open a window and enter the date, time and so on.
Anyway thank you again for the reply. .
