I hope this is the correct place to post. This is my first time here. I recently renewed my internet security subscription. (I won't say of what, because I honestly don't think that the type is the issue here.)***** Immediately after doing so, the Calendar and Weather gadgets stopped working. The Calendar shows up as a blank orange/white square and opening up the Weather gadget will just reveal the "i" information symbol and a X close button, neither of which actually work. I also SWEAR the Clock gadget also stopped working but then after an hour later it started working again and has been working since. I have tried deleting/uninstalling the gadgets but that hasn't worked. I have tried several tricks with the Windows command prompt which doesn't work either. I'm considering using an automatic system restore (I don't have any manual saved points to restore) on just the gadgets themselves. Is that the way to go, or is there something else I could try? Please keep in mind that while I'm good with laptops I'm by no means an expert. So try not to get too technical on me all at once. ^^; *****I've decided to name it: McAfee. I didn't at first, because it's been my experience whenever I mention a problem and mention an antiviral program; people will ignore the problem entirely and just tell me what I should buy. (I should trust you guys.) I mention McAfee because it's an odd thing: I've searched forums and have found that others have had the almost the same problem; except with them it happens when you UNINSTALL McAfee, not renew it. I've also found another possible solution that involves deleting a registry key, but I'm way too nervous to try that. Unless you people think I should.
