Re: Windows Gadgets dangerous in Win7
I had used the CPU meters for a long time, but after Microsoft issued the warning about potential security risks, I quit using them. There was a post on the Windows 7 about this recently when a user upgraded to I.E. 11 it disabled his gadgets.
I have Win 8 (dual boot with Win 7) but I haven't found anything like the CPU meter. I don't use the "metro" in Windows 8, I have mine set to boot to the desktop and it works just like Win 7 so any app that they have would be useless in the desktop mode.
