The weather gadget has been handy and generally reliable.
My weather gadget did the same thing around the same time on my win7.
It will change the value of this registry key: Shyam aka “Captain Jack” is a Microsoft MVP alumnus and a Windows Enthusiast with an interest in Advanced Windows troubleshooting.
Suggestions made and opinions expressed by him here are his personal one's and not of his current employers.
Anyway, I just wanted to throw this out there, to see if any of you think MS has changed the gadget coding to correct that?
BTW, my weather gadget is still working, and whatever they have changed, it's wonderful not to have that constant blinking.
The only thing that happens to it, is when some MS updates are done, they apparently lock whatever makes it work.
(V) Try to re-register concerned dll files of Windows gadgets. Go to Start and under search type in Even after trying the above-mentioned troubleshooting steps, you are unable to get them to work, you can try these Fix It solutions released by Microsoft.
(IV) Sometimes, switching Windows Color Management to Default Profile may help. Go to Start and under search type in Color Management. Click on Advanced Tab and make sure the Device Profile is selected as System Default; if not change it.
This fix seems to work as long as the file and folder exists.
Not every Win 7 installation has this file/folder, as I discussed it with a friend who tried to fix it on his machine and he didn't even have the Windows Live folder.
