Gadget with Windows 7 and DPI?

I have problems with sidebar gadget in vista 32bit when I install IE8--Analog clocks don't work and red box around gadgets--if custom DPI used.

Has anybody run gadgets in windows 7--especially with custom DPI for font size...

Are gadgets availabe in Windows 7 ( know there is no sidebar) or does one have to download them?

Have you tried with custom DPI? This is what causes problems in vista--with normal or lage DPI no problems in vista with IE8

Windows 7 Gadget Freezes
For me the Desktop Gadget Drives Meter randomly freezes and stops updating the drive information from time to time. Is this simply poor software coding or is it most likely caused by a system hangup and something more in my control? Thanks for the information
