Methinks, I'll chance downloading the clock I referred to earlier and risk the warning list will not happen. Since the downloads are accessed from the Gallery, I'll assume they're OK
I'll let ye know

Barman asked that u type 'gadgets' -- it's available on mine.

YAHOO BARMAN!!!!!
I should have paid more attention to your answer.
Before downloading from the web I tried typing GADGETS once again and found the RESTORE listed under Desktop Gallery Gadgets along with a lot of other useful facilities. I was just too quick to click on Gallery without taking the trouble to look at the listings. I've learned a good lesson today and would like to heartily thank you, and all those who responded. (Ill go back now and acknowledge your help in solving my problem)
Live long and prosper

Good work Jolan!

I remember when I used to delete the actual Recycle Bin in Vista(Was way too easy to do) Took me ages to figure out how to get it back. I'm glad 7 got rid of that delete option.

Good work Barman, and everyone else on contributing to the solution.

Clock problems

I also have problems with my OEM Gadget clock. I have restored it per Barman58's instructions. This worked to restore it. When I add it to the desktop, I get a square black box with two red hands pointing to Noon only. I don't have any way to change the face, or make the clock work.

Originally, I also deleted it unintentially. I also had a virus about that time, which Norton fixed.

I don't remember how I set the look of the clock when I purchased the notebook. It seems like I right-clicked on it, and set the parameters. All I get when I right-click is Add Gadgets/Move/Always on top/Opacity/Close Gadget. Any suggestions as to what to check? It seems strange that the clock isn't reading the system time...

Thanks in advance!

Try this
right click on the system clock bottom right
adjust time
internet time.
Make sure its set to internet time.

You have to use the default clock and right click to change the face

Richc46: The system clock is set for internet time. The gadget clock is the default clock in gadgets. When I right click on the clock, there is no option for changing the face. And the time still shows as 12 noon (or midnight...).

I did restore the gadgets per previous instructions. The clock shows up in the gadget window. I also went to Features, turned off the gadgets, rebooted, then turned the gadgets back on. Still have the same square black box with red hands that don't move....

Tried that... no luck. All modules registered okay...... Frustrating. Ran SFC /SCANNOW. No errors or problems found.
