Desktop gadgets works not

I used to have a gadget calendar/weather on my desktop, but recently it ceased to appear at the beginning.

I can not open any window of Google desktop gadgets, whether through click with the right button on the desktop or through the control panel.

I try to click on something to do with the desktop gadgets and nothing comes, it seems right that it is impossible to open it.

If anyone can help me solve this problem, I will be really grateful.

Some time ago I put in place a number of fixes for Windows & gadgets in a comprehensive approach. CMD batch file. Take a look at the next thread for my solution with FixMyGadgets.cmd in this thread. ,

  • Gadgets not working not not on Win 7 Ultimate x 64

    I have 2 PC, 1 is 2 years and 1 that is brand new.  Both have Windows 7 Ultimate x 64 on them completely up-to-date, and Desktop Gadgets do not work on either.  I went to control panel > programs > Windows features on or off turn on and the Windows Gadgets is activated in its box.  However, Gadgets will not launch when I click on the Desktop Gadgets in the control panel or from the desktop.  I really want to use weather bug and all UC, especially the counter cpu I want to actively monitor the performance of my cpu and memory.


    They do not correctly when you installed IE11.

    You can play with the ppp settings. Reduce the setting works, but for me, the cure is worse than being without one or two gadgets. You lose not all the gadgets, only some of them.
