my Windows 7 desktop gadgets have been acting strange for a while now. The right left arrows for the picture slide show are invisible when i hover over them and the weather gadget is all pink. Anyone have any suggestions for a fix?

Heres a pic of the weather gadget

How are you able to use Gadgets? Windows discontinued them a long time ago. Microsoft completely removed the feature from 7.

You mean in 8? I just enabled the CPU/RAM meter the other day on my 7 system.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

No I mean 7. There was an update that removed them. I don't use 7 anymore so unfortunately I can't take a screenshot to prove it.

When I try to install new gadgets I get an error message saying they've been discontinued. They definitely haven't been disabled though, I'm using the CPU/RAM meter on my desktop currently, I enabled it this weekend, and it was enabled on my netbook by default and I never disabled it. They're both completely up to date unless there's some update I have to manually download and install from somewhere other than Windows Update.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.
