  1. As most have found out if you disable the UAC (User Account Controls) the desk top gadgets don't work. I found the registy edit that lets you disable UAC and keep the desktop gadgets. I did reboot to see if it works and it does!

      1. Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe)

      2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionSidebarSettings

      3. Create a new DWORD Value called AllowElevatedProcess

      4. Set the value of the new DWORD to 1

      5. Close the registry editor. Your gadgets should work now. No reboot or anything necessary.

    I've had Win 7 since it came out with UAC disabled and all my Gadgets work, desktop or otherwise. I was totally unaware of this reg hack. I may have to dig into this further.
