    Sidebar Gadget

    I downloaded the wunderground sidebar gadget, but it is not available for
    loading up. Where do I need to put it for Vista to recognize it?

    It doesn't recognize it. Windows opens up a window asking to search the
    internet for a program that runs it.

    The gadget you downloaded should have a name of ' wunderground.gadget '
    The ' .gadget ' extension is important.
    With the correct extension it should have an icon of a clock, calculator and yellow note symbol.
    What is your download called and what does the icon look like ?

    It is called wunderground.gadget and the icon is a blank page with the top
    left corner turned toward me. The other gadgets are
    AuctionSidebarTool.gadget, same icon, WundergroundVistaWidget.gadget, same
    icon.

    no gadgets are working at this time. They were working a while ago, but I
    shut down the sidebar a few months ago.
