  1. A while back we told that we needed to turn off Google Gadgets, because people could get our user names and password through them, or maybe it was the threat of viruses. I don't remember.
    Is this a lifetime thing,or will the time come when we can use them again?

    “…Microsoft urged Windows Vista and 7 users to download a tool that disables the operating system's sidebar and gadgets.”
    The way I understand it, the gadgets are of the operating system, not Google. If it’s so, the thread title that mentions Google should be corrected accordingly.
