    I understand that there is no sidebar on Windows 7, but there are still desktop gadgets. Whenever I try to open 'Desktop Gadget Gallery' nothing happens. Anybody got the same problem? I have the beta installed on two machines and they both have the same problem.

    I have the same problem. Initially I could add gadgets but then the facility stopped working and the gadgets disappeared.

    That's exactly my problem. Is it a bug? Anyone aware of a fix?

    If you have disabled UAC then the gadgets have also been disabled.

    Why should the gadgets be ‘related’ to UAC?

    It’s as though it’s a punishment “You’ve turned off UAC, so we (Microsoft) are not allowing you to see the gadgetsâ€Â￾.

    Apparently this is a bug in 7, although quite a strange one... I have the same problem so rest assured its not your system :D

    I've heard of this. Yet I have UAC set to Never notify / Off. And I have sidebar gadgets working. Have done since day one. Weird.

    Must be glad to be able to get back in here if I'm answering 18 month old OP!!
