    Default Restore your gadgets in Windows 7 even though UAC is disabled

    Windows 7 has tightened up its security by refusing to run gadgets if UAC has been turned off, so limiting the damage malicious unsigned gadgets can do to your system.

    If you've disabled UAC, miss your gadgets and are happy to accept the security risk there's an Registry to get everything back to normal.

    Run REGEDIT, Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Sidebar\Settings,

    Create a new DWORD value called AllowElevatedProcess and set it to 1.



    Your gadgets should start working again.

    ^ Yes, this is a problem in 7000 build. Good thing is that MS has removed this restriction in 7022 build. Personally, I don't like gadgets since I like a clutter free desktop.

    I think, its must be there as an option to enable or disable such security.
