Solved Windows 7 Desktop gadget gallery doesn't load.

November 27, 2014 at 17:27:47
Specs: Windows 7 home 64 bit, fx 8350, 8 gigs
Sometimes when I boot my pc ( win 7 home 64 bit, athalon fx 8350 gtx 770 gpu, 8 gigs ram, ssd, mech hd) the desktop gadget gallery won't load. I can't open from the start menu either. I have to reboot to get it to work. This happens a lot. Any thoughts?

✔ Best Answer
Probably not the thought you wanted but be aware that gadgets were abandoned by MS for Win 8 because they are seen as a security risk - unknown sources and malware. Found this:

My advice would be to get shot of them.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
