I am using Win 7, 7100 and have done a clean install but there does not seem to be any gadgets. Whether I right click on the screen and select gadgets or go to Control Panel ansd click the same bnothing happens. What is more when I write "desktop gadgets" in the help prog it produces anything but help about gadgets.

Any Ideas folks?

1.Check it is enabled in Control Panel>Programmes and Features>Turn Windows Feature on or off. (see attachment for screenshot)

2. There was a bug i think that if UAC was completely Disabled Gadgets would not work.

Type Gadgets into Start search and see what pops up

Well you know what happens; a window pops up with lots of choices. I have tried each one and the little circle appears for a few mo then nothing happens.

I have tried the options given after typing gadgets in tthe start menu and still nothing happens

I have also checked that the gadget platform feature is turned on and that the UAC is also on

still no gadgets.

Thats really odd, what are your system specs - i'll have a look to see if there are any more things that may cause this

EDIT: do you have desktop icons hidden - also you must restart after enabling UAC

System: intel core 2 quad, 6Gigs DDR 2, HDD WD Velociraptor SATA2, Vid. Nvidea G-Force 8800 ult

I was wondering if a reinstall might fix it but I will probably wait until Win 7 hits the streets.
