Gadgets do not work after reboot, but... RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing gadgets (4) on my desktop in Win7, they do not come up after a reboot. BUT, if I run the 'gadgets' application from Control panel), they show up and work fine until the next reboot (I wound up putting a short cut to ControlPanel/ GADGETS on my desktop to make it easier - BUT I'D SURE LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO HAVE THEM START AUTOMATICLY like they are supposed to. Oh, yeah, I already tried turning UAC on/off, but that doesn't do anything to help.
