    It's possible, I didn't realize it was a full blown feature, I'll try that and get back to you!

    Well, I checked that and they were installed, the mem usage leaves only about 70mb. I'm fairly sure it's due to low RAM, I'll update again after I put more in.

    I'm using 512Mb RAM and also have this problem! So it would seem that it could definitely be down to that, I can still run sticky notes though, although I find them not as good as the Vista version.

    waymack91xj, i had the same problem and i found the solution in some other thread of this forum. disabling the user account control causes this problem. enabling back the UAC may solve your problem. see if it helps.

    Nope, was a RAM issue. It was filing it up on mem and wouldn't run Aero either. Upgrading caused Aero to return and Gadgets to work. UAC is disabled on both comps too and everything seems to be working fine for me.

    Also, don't feel like I've forgotten lol, I just upgraded the RAM on Monday.

    You need UAC on for gadgets to work.
