Specs: Windows Vista
Until last friday (01 MAR 2013) I had the gadget running and updating itself regularly. Over the weekend and on Monday. I noticed that it wasn't updating, although the links from if were still working. On Tuesday, I tried removing one of the stocks and re-adding it. and ended up with "Service not available", The same result was obtained when I removed the gadget and reinstalled it.

For some time now Microsoft has been discouraging the use of desktop gadgets because of the security issues. I believe all of the servers supporting them are now inoperative and I would not expect to see service restored. You need to find an alternative source for your information.
