Windows 7 gadget installation question


Just a while ago I've installed a windows gadget and before it pop up on my desktop I've installed another gadget. Was wondering did what I did was safe or it was possible for my gadget to be corrupted and should have waited for the first gadget to show up on desktop before installing the next one? Sorry for my awkward tone and many thanks in advance.

I've never had a problem with this program.
If the gadgets are on your desktop, I wouldn't worry.

You can always uninstall and reinstall if you like.

This is what you are using - right?

Thanks, at least I'm much more relief now. Currently I'm using gadgets from Orblog, one of my favorites.
