Sidebar Gadgets

Hello Vista users.

I have a copy of Ultimate installed, and so far (touch wood) there have been no major issues. However, can someone tell me how you're supposed to install new gadgets to the sidebar? I've downloaded a couple from the Windows linked download site, ran the install and.....nothing, No sign of them in the sidebar or the sidebar folder.

Any ideas?

A bit like taking the car to the mechanic this one. It looks like Vista was 'busy' doing ither stuff. All of a sudden the gadgets appeared in the sidebar all at once after about 10 minutes. Oh well.

Click the plus sign at the top of the sidebar then browse to the location you saved the gadgets.

yeah, did that originally but they just weren't even in the 'add gadgets' browser. It took 10 minutes for them to appear then all 3 popped onto the sidebar at once. Scared the life out of me!!!!
