Okay, this is a weird one. Today I noticed that one of the desktop gadgets on my machine didn't seem to be launching, or maybe I only thought it didn't, but there's a gap now where my vague memory says there should be one, but I can't remember which if any it was. In any event, I decided to go launch the Add Gadgets to the Desktop window... You know, that nice window that lists all the available, installed gadgets by these big icons you can interact with to turn on or off gadgets, uninstall them, etc. ...so that I could find the relevant gadget and maybe force it to launch from there, or disable and then re-enable it, or something, or at least refresh my memory as to which gadgets I have enabled there. I right clicked on the desktop, selected Gadgets... and nothing came up. I went to Control Panel > Programs, and selected Add Gadgets to the Desktop from there... and nothing came up. I went to the Search Programs and Files field in Start, searched for Gadget, and selected Desktop Gadget Gallery from there.... and nothing happened. I went back there and selected Desktop Gadget... and nothing happened. I selected View List of Running Gadgets, and that DID bring up a window that just lists as text (rather than with icons) the names of the running gadgets, and lets me Remove them from the desktop if I want (but doesn't uninstall), but this wasn't the pane I was looking for. It looks like all or most of my intended gadgets have launched, but I can't get the big pane that shows all the available gadgets. Any idea what's up with that? This is on Win7 64bit.
