Hi Elias,

Your answer explains my last question about Who's Online.

As regards the suggestion of a disk cleanup, I have done this to no avail. I opened the gadget, performed a standard cleanup (all options except Hibernation File Cleaner selected). No change in the gadget. I then closed and re-opened it. Still no change. I then performed a cleanup again, this time selecting Cleanup system files, again selecting all options except for HFC. Still no change in the gadget, even when I closed and re-opened it.

Dam, I thought I was on to something with that, the reason I suggested it was because I changed my avatar and it was still the old one on the gadget for over a day until I used disk cleanup and then it was instantly changed to the new one.

I can't login with the gadget at all. I had a problem with not being able to login to live messenger in b7000 that started a couple days ago. Don't use it much so no biggie, but then today the gadget can't log me in either. Switched to b7057 and messenger is working fine, but the gadget still not working. Have tried cleaning IE files, temp. cookies and such, but to no avail. Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no help. Any ideas.

Edit: have tried autologin, nothing. tried manual login and get the wait 15 mins warning.

Hi Elias,

Here's a snip showing both the gadget AND the webpage version simultaneously.

As you can see, the icons are present on the webpage, but not in the gadget.

Can you give this one a try and see if it logs you in as me and if that works see if you can log in as you.

I'm with Dwarf on this one, Disk cleanup does nothing as I've cleared my FF cache and used CCleaner a bunch of times which usually leaves nothing for Disk cleanup in 7057, re downloaded and all that, it does nothing for the icons.

Hi Mr GRiM,

I can log in as you, and guess what? The icons ARE showing correctly, so it must be something to do with the extra sub-forums that I am entitled to.

I verified this by closing the gadget, re-opening it as a guest (icons showing) and then repeating but logging in as myself (icons missing).

Yeah, the same thing happened to me signing in as Limneos yesterday. without the other forums, the icons work. maybe be a permission problem.

No worries, now that's confirmed I better delete the link for my gadget so no one can access my user account.
