  • Hello Debbie,

     

    For your problem description, I suppose that the desktop gadgets should be disabled on your computer; please directly refer to the following hyperlink to narrow down the problem.

    If the problem still persists after enabling the desktop gadgets, be assured that you are logging the system administrator account and not working in a domain environment .

     

    Thanks for your time and understanding!

  • Thanks for your reply.  Will check that out.  I have another question, what is the Windows Power Shell?  It's listed under programs, do I need it?

  • Windows Power shell is scripting utility to perform various functions using command line switches or you can develop your own small shell programs to perform particular sort of activites like setting group poilcies and many more....

    Its much more useful for an IT Pro or system admininstrator.....

    Oh So I wouldn't be using that.  Can it be removed from win 7 or just leave it alone?  It's listed under accessories.

  • I don't think it can be disabled, I'd just leave it alone.
