It is reported that Microsoft issued an update in July 2012 to remove the gadget/sidebar from Windows 7 because it is unsafe. Can anyone advise on this. I did not receive the update and gadgets remained on my system
The article was in the last issue of Computeractive, or maybe the one before that and was by one of the Computeractive team. I have saved a pdf of the article but can't attached to this response.
Your view is that Gadgets is safe then
