For Desktop gadgets UAC must be on (even just at the lowest setting) and right click the desktop and check show desktop icons

I had this problem - no gadgets- I tried everything, the only thing that worked was to re-instal win7.

Gadgets not available

Try the following:

1. Open Control Panel
2. Click on 'Programs and Features'
3. Click on 'Turn Windows features on and off'
4. Make sure 'Windows Gadget Platform' is ticked. If not, tick it and reboot.

If this item is already ticked, or if after ticking it and rebooting gadgets still do not work don't know what to advise.

If it is ticked, try unticking (uninstall) reboot and the reinstall it.
If that doesn't work,,, nuke and reload.
