    Default Windows 8 Desktop Gadgets has Stopped Working

    hello, guys

    I hope this is the right place to get. if not, i apologize, let me know and i will move it to where it should be.
    my desktop gadgets such as Adobe reader have stopped working one week ago and i have googled this error up but still can not find a good solution so far.
    During the system startup I get this message " windows desktop gadgets has stopped working".
    by the way, i am running windows 8 64 bit on a HP inpirion 1525 2.4 dual core, 4 gb mem, on board graphics.
    thank you for your time and i am waiting here for your help.

    Hi,

    Please make sure to turn on UAC and “Show desktop icons” by right clicking on desktop > View > Show Desktop icons. because you might have turn off the UAC, but if it is not the case, no more suggestions!

    You can try re-launching the Gadgets and disable newly added. That worked for me: I had Daemon tools installed and its gadget. After installing it - every time I had "Gadgets stopped working" message. When I disable DT gadget - problem disappeared.

    I believe it might be the issue of compatibility of 3rd party desktop gadgets...

    Hope it helps.

    Whoa !

    You've just responded to a thread that is way over a year old and all about a version of Win-8 we're not even using anymore.

    All responses since June 1, should be on Windows 8 RP only.

    Case closed.
