    Default Windows 8 Gadgets not Working

    Hi guys,

    I have turned off the User Account Control of my Windows 8 beta, then the Windows 8 gadgets nerver works again. I do not know why this happened. Does it have something to do with the UAC, and how can I make it work even if Idisable the UAC?

    Pls do me a favor!

    Thanks very much!

    it is likely that the windows 8 desktop gadget is installed with administrator. if you fail to open it by click the gadget icon, try to open it by right click on desktop. Or try Control Panel--Appearance and individualized--Desktop gadget--Restore the desktop gadget on Windows 8.

    This generally happens if UAC is disabled or the security levels are set to the least level. To fix this problem, you need to set the UAC back to default level or at least level 1. You will then be able to install Windows 8 Gadgets on your desktop sidebar.
