Gadgets not displaying correctly

#1
For some odd reason, about a month ago all gadgets in my win 7 ultimate stopped working correctly and now look like this when extended:

Not even samples for the clock are displayed correctly anymore, instead I just get this red X-es.
I've tried many things already, such as repairing windows for the dvd and so on but none have worked.

Have you applied any modifications to your system that may have caused this problem?


Things to try:


1. With the 7 disk in the drive, cmd > sfc /scannow
2. cmd > chkdsk
3. Control Panel > Programs > turn features on or off > Windows gadget platform -> turn it off, reboot, then turn it back on and reboot
4. Try running the bar directly from the sidebar.exe (C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar)

Tried everything, still doesn't work. Getting close to a re-install right about now.

[lang=fr]Bonjour,

Il faut déniché le problème par la racine et le résoudre, alors

Cliquez sur Démarrer
Dans la case "Rechercher les programmes et fichiers", tapez Regedit et appuyez sur entrée
Développez le dossier HKEY_CURRENT_USER puis les dossiers suivants : Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\
Des sous-dossiers apparaissent numérotés. Avant le sous-dossiers 0, il devrait y avoir un sous-dossier avec un symbole bizarre. Supprimez ce sous-dossier.
Redémarrez l'ordinateur... les gadgets s'affichent.[/lang]
