    Do you know why MS disabonded Gadgets? They where disabonded becaus they have several gaping big security holes which are not trival to fix meaning they have design flaws in there entire security. So be aware that you may have a gaping bit security hole if you use Gadgets.

    Yes, it is! Just be a bit careful what Gadgets you're using, check first and use after it's declared OK!
