    I'm using Windows 7 and have been using the 'Daily Planner Calendar' Yahoo widget for years.

    A few days ago it started crashing on me whenever I tried to insert a new event. I uninstalled 'Yahoo Widgets' and reinstalled it.

    Now while all the other widgets still work, the 'Daily Planner Calendar' doesn't even start up. I only see the loading window and then it hangs.

    (You can get it here: h t t p : //pogopixels.com/download/Google-Day-Planner-Calendar_4.html)
    What I get from Windows 7 Event Viewer is this:

    Log Name:      Application

    The program YahooWidgets.exe version stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.

    The thing is, Yahoowidgets.exe doesn't close although the log says it does. It isn't a bad thing, just thought you might want to know.

    Also, if you are unfamiliar with Yahoo widgets then you should know that 'Yahoo Widgets' is a platform for widgets. So yahoowidgest.exe has to be active in order to have the widgets, but you can close certain widgets (or even all of them) while still having yahoowidgets.exe active.

    Hope I didn't confuse anyone.

    Also, this might help. I started getting this message lately, note the misspelling in the message:
    Couldn't find anything helpful about that.

    Thanks in advance.
