    Hi

    No, I don't think that the Gadget extensibility would be able to provide this type of functionality without a third party product.

    Gadgets simply provide an alternate, more convenient, way to display information that fully functional software/hardware components have already collected.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for using Windows 7

  • No, you must have a 3rd party utility installed to provide the info, and use a gadget that is designed for that particular utility.

  • Somebody else had just asked that very question a few days ago, I'll have to see what the results of that question is once I find it. Keep thinking one of our regulars asked that.
