Windows 7 64 bit

I hate to be a party-pooper or special problem case, but what does one try when the .bat 'fix' doesn't work [for me]?!

Hello Crazybear,

Did you ever try temporarily uinstall Norton, and any other 3rd party firewall or AV program, completely to see if it was a cause of this for you?

Both Methods Didn't Work! :(

Hi Brink! I was just reading through all the advice you gave everyone! Really great job! However, both methods (The .bat automatic method while running it as an administrator, and the manual method while running command prompt as administrator) didn't work. I also tried creating another administrator account to see if it was just my own account that was faulty, however, the gadgets on the other account also had the same error. I attached a screenshot as to what my gadgets look like.

Thank you!

Edit: Also I disabled my AVG firewall before doing both methods. And to note, I restarted my computer after both attempts.

Hello DopeTurtle, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test, completely uninstall AVG Firewall, and run the .bat again to see if they work afterwards. If they do, then you'll need to make sure that the gadgets are set to be allowed through the AVG firewall and not being blocked in that program's exception settings.

Hope this helps for now,

gadgets dont display

The suggestion to restore the computer to an earlier time does not apply since my ACER and also one purchased by my friend on the same day ... exact same model, would not display gadgets from day one. I have tried running the batch file but to no avail. I have changed from the default trial period anti virus program and I am now running microsoft essentials. I have not tried adding gadgets since changing the AV program, so I will give that a try.

None of the above solutions worked for me. However running SFC /scannow in command prompt worked as a charm.

Hello asivasagarreddy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help.
