    Default Windows 7 gadgets not working

    Recently, I cannot use the Win 7 desktop gadgets. When I add a gadget, it either has faulty display or doesn't display at all. For instance when I add 'clock', only a black square with a still second hand appears.

    I have tried all the 6 ways mentioned by ShyamS@TWC to no avail.

    Any other suggestions?

    Open regedit.exe, export (backup) and then delete this registry key:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\

    Re-boot. Restart sidebar process.

    Possibly related to Adobe Flash update.

    Edit: Sorry whs, didn't spot the link in your post!
