Win 8 digital desktop clock for win 7 ??

I want to add win 8 digital desktop clock for windows 7. I used a small application but when I will restart pc. Or shut down then restart, every time I will need to run the app. So, Is there any permanent digital clock (permanent like window 7 gadget clock) but looks like windows 8 digital clock.

Thank you.

This is a live tile in 8 correct? You might like the HUD clock, which I also use.

Nice oprtions both.

I would've preffer using the standalone version (sugested by DriveSoft), but it failed showing correct information (in a matter of seconds the app showed 4-5 different minutes in the hour range, like 8:09; 8:16; 8:54 ...). Don't know why, didn't thought of troubleshooting it since I lost confidence instantly.

@ A Guy: the "HUD clock" gadget looks nice, thanks for the sugestion. Are you still using it? I was wondering if you noticed any security issues, since it's a known fact that the Gadgets platform in Windows 7 has serious vulnerabilities.

Welcome to Seven Forums 7eleven. You wouldn't "notice any security issues". I still use all my gadgets. I think there could be a security issue, but I believe it would be quite small. I also believe MS wanted to dump gadgets, and it was "oh by the way, gadgets can be insecure". I believe my layered security would warn of any unusual activity. I have zero worry using gadgets myself All my gadgets came from trusted sources. Don't get me wrong, the possibility a gadget could be either coded specifically for nefarious reasons, or badly coded leaving it vulnerable, does exist. In fact, D/L this small PDF and have an interesting read. It's conclusion? Disable gadgets
