    I have a weird problem. I have installed 8GadgetPack on my Win 8, and it has worked for a while. I have had 6 gadgets added to the desktop. However, now when I try to add more gadgets, when I drag the gadgets from the list to the desktop, the gadget symbol freezes on the desktop, and the gadget is not installed. The gadget icon remains fixed on the desktop, cannot be moved, and always remains on top of all windows. No system reconfiguration has been done, and no new apps have been installed.

    When I restart the machine, or just log out and in again, the gadget is gone.

    In short: I can't add more gadgets. :(

    Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, what can be done?

    Any answer will be greatly appreciated.
