I have set mine to the lowest opacity so it's barely visible unless I mouse over it, nice touch at the bottom as well. I don't have that problem for some reason Aaron.

Hey, yeah I got it..
It happens cause its not set as a background image, but as a hovering one. I can change that. Meanwhile, try not to click and drag it. Click on the text below instead.

Hi Elias,

Great gadget - thanks.

My gadget gallery window is now empty. they only show up if I close the Seven forums gadget.

Custom SevenForums Gadgets-gadgets-2009-01-28_033102.jpg

I never bothered with gadgets before, so is there something really obvious that I am not doing ?

If I close it, they show up - but now the sevenforums one won't start again - when I double click on any of the others they start up and appear on the desktop.

Thanks

SIW2

Hi Aaron,

Just rebooted to see if that would help.

Now the gadget window won't open at all.

You will find the gadget here, just use task manager to close your sidebar.exe and delete the files and then see if you can open them again.
